Unit 14 - Precautionary Measures

 

 

I think the picture shows that in the end, global warming will turn the earth into a desert.

 

We should protect the nature as a precaution to global warming. We shouldn't  pollute the environment. We can try to use less electricity and less water. We must use less energy in our lives.
We must recycle too.

 

 

-How can I use solar energy?
-We can use solar power for our hot water and heating. You can buy solar energy panels for your house.
-How can I reduce pollution caused by cars?
-You can use other methods of travel. You can walk short distances and use public transport for long distances.
-How can I use less electric energy?
-You can turn off lights when you go out of a room. You can turn the air conditioning down in summers too.
-What do the three Rs mean?
-They mean reduce, reuse and recyle.
These words remind me of the summer holiday.
"Remind (somebody) of" kalıbının manası, bir kişiye (somebody) bir şeyi hatırlatmaktır.



 

 İngilizce ifadelerde bazen "in case" yapısı kullanılır. In case,  alınacak önlemi ifade eder. Türkçede " ne olur ne olmaz, ...olması halinde " anlamlarına gelir.

Burada gerçekleşme ihtimali az olan kötü bir olaydan bahsedilir ve bu olayın önlemi söylenir.

Daha önce "so ........ that"  şeklinde araya bir sıfat da koyarak amaç bildirmeyi öğrenmiştik. Buradaki "so that" kavramı ise, anlam olarak biraz daha farklıdır. "so that" kalıbı, "in order to" kalıbı gibi amaç bildirerek iki cümleciği bağlar. Çoğu zaman da bağlanan cümleler ile alınan önlemin sonuncu anlatılmış olur.

I went home as fast as I could in order to watch that show.

Global warming is a very serious issue. We should take precautions to prevent global warming.
Here are some sensible precautions. We can help the environment with these precautions.
 
First of all, try to use everything sensibly. If you don't need it, don't buy it. If you don't need it, don't use it. We must try to use less energy. For example, we must turn off the lights when we get out of a room so that we can save energy. We must try to use less water too.
We should try to travel efficiently. We don't have to drive everywhere, we can walk short distances. We must use fuel efficiently in case we must use our cars. We must also try to use less paper.
It is very important to reuse and recycle. We should collect materials like plastic, metal, glass and paper and recycle them.
We shouldn't harm the nature. We should try to preserve the environment so that we can prevent  global warming.  We can do these precautions easily and they are very important.
 
We can apply these precautions in our daily lives. Everybody has to do their part to prevent global warming.
 
Use everything sensibly so that you won't waste anything.
We must turn off the lights when we get out of a room so that we can save energy.
