Planet on the move (P1)
江苏省南菁高级中学  范克强
I. Brain-storming   
Do you know the following travel destinations?
Do you want to travel to these places? Why?
II. Reading  
Fast- reading
The article is about the phenomenon of planet on the move and discusses the reasons why two places are worth visiting now. The reasons are: climate changes, upcoming cultural events and changes of our attitudes toward places.  
1. Why do people never settle on a specific date to go on a trip to a travel destination recommendation?
It’s unlikely that these places are going to change. And visiting them now or some other time doesn’t seem to make a big difference. 
2. Why does the author use the Ontario Ice Caves in Canada and Dakar as an example?
The author wants to emphasize that change is key and that each destination has unique characteristics that make it a place to visit at the moment. But The Ontario Ice Caves in Canada are different from Dakar.
3. What do a snowy North American city and a city by the sea on the west coast of Africa have in common?
They are both places threatened and influenced by climate change. The Ontario Ice Caves, which are made up of snow and ice are gradually melting and won’t be able to hold up for long due to global warming. Stronger and stronger sand storms are posing a great threat to Dakar.
4. Apart from climate change, what other reasons are mentioned in the article?
The author also talks about upcoming cultural events that make Chongli, one of the hosting cities of the 2022 Winter Olympics, and Dessau, which houses the famous Bauhaus art school worth visiting right now. The most important reason is perhaps the change in our attitude toward places.
5. What’s the The New York Times correspondent’s opinion of changing our attitudes toward places?
The correspondent thinks that there’s often a huge gap between the everyday lived experience of people on the ground and the country as we understand it through newspaper headlines. The correspondent is ready for any preconceptions.
Why is the article called Planet on the move? 
The article tells us that places on the planet are not really staying the same, but are gradually changing due to climate changes, such as global warming and sand storms. Meanwhile, the author wants us to pay more attention to this phenomenon and calls on us to visit these places right now because they are on the move.
