如果我们再不采取措施,人类生存环境将受到威胁。



词数 237 建议阅读时间 3分钟

CLIMATE change, the extinction (灭绝) of animals and plants, and a fast growing population are threatening human survival, according to a new UN report.

The well being of billions of people in the developing world is at risk, the report says. Population growth and rapid economic development are causing the loss of natural resources. And human health in Asia continues to deteriorate (恶化).

The warning is the latest in a series of reports on the global environment released by the UN Environment Program. Despite the dark picture it paints, the UNEP says it doesn’t want to present a gloomy future. Rather, it is a call for people to take action.

Progress has been achieved, but some old problems remain while new ones are appearing, such as new and old diseases linked partly to environment changes. The report emphasizes the impact of climate change, which is likely to result in more droughts (干旱) and floods.

The Asia and the Pacific region, which is home to 60 percent of the world’s population, is making large progress in reducing poverty, the UN report says.

But progress has come at a high cost. The report says: “Serious challenges remain, including air quality, fresh water stress, agricultural land use and increased waste.”

But the report also says technology can help reduce damage to the environment. “Our future depends on our actions today, not tomorrow or some time in the future.”
