If you've lived in Beijing for some time, you have probably noticed that the color of the sky has been changing, and the number of hazy days has increased slightly over the past 10 years. When sandstorm comes, the sky becomes sandy brown and you can't see far. After a night of wind, you see cars covered with a thin layer (层) of dust. Sandstorms are mainly caused by excessive deforestation (过度森林采伐). The government is encouraging citizens to plant more trees. As teenagers, we can also persuade our parents to drive less often.


— Zhang Jianqiao, 17, Beijing


Air pollution is one of the most serious problems nowadays, especially here in Shanxi Province. Just take my experience as an example: There's a hospital near my home, which produces gas that smells bad every day. Our neighbors called reporters for help and they wrote an article about the problem, but the problem was not solved. The gas really influenced our life because we couldn't open the window for a long time.

As we all know, Shanxi is famous for its coal. However, how many people think about the pollution problems that coal has brought us?


— Wang Yixiao, 17, Shanxi


It's not nice when the clouds get so dirty and brown. The sky is full of smoke from cars and buses. The rubbish that people throw on the ground makes the whole street smell terrible. This makes the world around us look like a hell.

Let's work together to turn the hell into a heaven. Instead of a car, why not buy a bike? Instead of a drive, why not take a hike? And never drop litter on the ground! Don't throw waste away — recycle it!


— Arouge Chaudhry, Tajmnia Chaudhey, Aimee Rebdon and Debi Moncur, England, UK


If I were a leader, I would control enterprises (企业) and make sure they obeyed environmental laws. I would punish them severely (严厉地) if they broke the laws.


— Boris Medvedev, Ukraine
