a video tape (沙尘暴的形成)

It can be reduced if we try to “repair” desert and protect areas that are in danger of becoming desert.

We should be more careful with our water, try to use less and recycle as much water as possible.

Water is the source of life, but it is not inexhaustible. If we did not take action now, the last drop of water in the world would be man’s tear!

水是生命之源,但它却不是取之不尽,用之不竭的。 如果我们现在不采取行动,世界上的最后一滴水将 是人类的眼泪!

We should live in harmony with nature.

Help me, help you, help everyone.
Return GREEN to the earth!
