短缺 shortage ; 资源 resource
Ladies and gentlemen,
Good morning. I’m Li Yue from China. It’s my great honor to be here to say something about the global water shortage and ways of dealing with it.
As we know, the global water shortage is becoming increasin gly severe mainly due to global warming, environmental pollution and the ever-increasing population. Therefore, it’s high time we did some thing about it.
Firstly, an effective way, I think, is to reserve water in a scientific way for future use.
Secondly, new methods need to be developed to use the existing water resources, for example, turning sea water into fresh water. Thirdly, we must stop water pollution by law. Last but not least, it’s everyone’s responsibility to make good use o f water, such as recycling and saving water in our daily life.
In conclusion, people around the world should be aware of the real situation of water shortage, protect the present water resources and explore potential ones scientifically.
That’s all. Thank you.
