As most people know, in the past few years, sandstorms have swept across many cities and areas of North China, polluting the air and disturbing daily lives of human beings. People look dirty and suffer many kinds of illnesses, such as breath difficulty. The sandstorm is such a serious problem that it has not only undermined the industrial and agricultural development of our country but also caused a lot of trouble to the living conditions of the Chinese people. It is expected that effective (有效的) measures should be taken as soon as possible through our joint efforts to limit its occurrence.
So what should we do with the frightening sandstorms? Some experts put forward practical suggestions as follows: For one thing, more funds (基金) ought to be put into tree planting and forest protection so as to keep more water resources within the surface of the earth. For another, governments of all countries should make laws on environmental protection. For example, banning the use of throw-away chopsticks and punishing illegal tree cutting. Scientists should also study and find ways to cut down the degree of its destruction and to improve the whole environment.
How people look forward to sunny days with little breeze (微风) touching their faces now and forever! Nevertheless, I am fully confident that the golden days can come back so long as everyone tries his best to protect natural environment from today on.

Most people buy and use a car as a means of transportation from here to there. Wouldn't it be great if there were other ways to travel easily without owning a car?
In recent years, the idea of “car_sharing” has become popular in Europe and the United States. Car sharing is a system where a group of people share the use of a few cars, rather than each person owning one.
On average, we drive our own cars as little as one hour a day. That's a waste of money, isn't it? To save costs, some people come up with the idea of “car sharing”. Instead of owning our own car, which costs money every day, we can share cars and only pay money when we use them. This is the car sharing system.
In Switzerland, a leader in car sharing, almost 40,000 people have joined a car share system, and borrow and return cars at 800 places across the country. In this system, people who drive less than 10,000 kilometers a year can reduce their driving costs. This is because they only have to pay for the basic fees and charges (费用) based on the actual travel distance. But when people own their own cars, they need to pay taxes, car inspection (检查) fees, parking fees, repair costs and so on. Since this system reduces household expenses (花费), more and more people are starting to do car sharing.
Car sharing is the beginning of a new idea in transportation in which we can use a service we need, without buying a product—a car.
