That can have a huge impact on our health, too. I call the police every time I see someone doing it, as it is illegal, but what can they do apart from making them pay a fine, when the government does so little?Speaker BThere are many animals that are endangered and it would be a real shame if they disappeared from earth forever. I think it's vital for governments to support wildlife conservation and habitat protection programmes, and fight against the many threats to these endangered species, such as habitat loss, poaching or illegal trade. Itis proven that many animals live longer in captivity than in the wild, so wildlife reserves, safaris and quality zoos should be funded by governments. And of course schools should teach children and young people to respect and protect animals.Speaker CI strongly believe that one of the best renewable energy resources is wind energy. Once wind turbines are installed, either individually or on windfarms, wind power is extremely easy to make and it's certainly one of the best alternatives to fossil fuels, as it's plentiful, renewable and widely available. I've just read an article where wind power was comparable in cost to coal or natural gas installations in a new house. So, when my wife and I finally decide where to build our eco-house, we'll consider getting our power from wind turbines. Either that, or a combination of solar panels and wind turbines.Speaker DI don't understand why so many people ignore the fact that their cars produce exhaust emissions that pollute the environment and use natural oil and other non-renewable resources. CO2emissions contribute significantlyto creating greenhouse gases, so it should be in everyone's interest to get an ecological car, which has low exhaust emissions and fuel consumption. Apparently making a new car creates as much carbon pollution as driving it, so we really should use public transport as much as possible. Speaker EWe live in an eco-friendly, or, as some call it, green neigbourhood. All the houses in our street were built from various recycled materials and are more energy efficient, because they use renewable energy sources, such as solar roof panels or heat pumps. I know it's a bit of an investment, but we feel great living in this area, not onlybecause we are saving energy, which means saving money, but also because we are reducing our carbon footprint. We don't own a car either. Instead, we cycle everywhere, or take a train or bus.36521Photocopiable© Oxford University Press 2013 Upper-Intermediate Progress tests A31
