Martha: Do you think most people in your culture respect nature?
Ed: I think so. Umm…more now than before.
Martha: What do you think is the most serious environment problem in the world today?
Ed: Today…I think damage to the ozone layer is a big problem;another problem is pollution in big cities and things like that.
Martha: How do you learn about environmental problems?
Ed: Umm…through school. A lot of clubs promote environmental safely, and some TV programs, too. They talk about environmental safely and stuff like that.
Martha: Do you think students should learn more about the environment at school?
Ed: I think so. So, as they grow older, they can be more aware of all the problems that are going on. And also to prevent more problems from occurring.
Martha: If you could create a new law to help the environment, what would it be?
Ed: A new law for the environment? Umm…I’d probably say that when people throw away their cigarette butts, they have to throw them into the garbage bin, not just throw them everywhere because it’s just littering and I hate that. So they should be fined if they throw them on the floor on the ground.
Martha: That’s a good idea. What do you personally do to help protect the environment?
Ed: I’ m so against littering. I never litter. If I see somebody litter, I get really angry. So I always throw my trash into the garbage bin.
While being interviewed by Martha, Ed said more people in his culture respect nature ever before. When asked about the most serious environmental problem in the world today, he mentioned the damaged ozone layer and the pollution in big cities.
