世界水日 The World Water Day
When it comes to the protection of water, People may know about the importance of doing it, but few people know about that March 22 is the world water day. The world water day aims to call up people’s attention to protect the fresh water and enhance the people’s awareness of water crisis. In China, the government stipulates that the last week of March is the Chinese water week. The main theme of this year is water and energy.
Due to water, the living being can exist on earth. Water sustains human life and the environment. But with the rapid development of human society, the fresh water can hardly meet the needs of people in some areas. According to the least data, more than one billion people can not have clean fresh water. What’s worse, the surface and groundwater pollution is increasing rapidly. The main reason of water shortage is the rapid growth of population. People use different ways to get water, the water sources are being stretched to their limits. Another reason is that some factories pour dirty water into the rivers or lakes and make pollution. Thus there is less pure fresh water on the earth.
It needs international cooperation and worldwide awareness to solve the problems of water shortage. Every ordinary people should realize the importance of water protection and save water. The government should take some effective measures to protect the water. Such as build more systems to clean-up the water, and collect the rainwater. Only in these ways, we can sustain our life.
