提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
Do you know of this? In fact, I got a little upset of all my stuff. Have you ever wondered where does this comes from and go, so throw away. I couldn't stop wonderring about that, so I look it up. And what the text book said it's the stuff move to a system, trashing, to production, to distribution, to consumption, to disposal,all together is called the material economy.Well, I look into a little bit more. In fact, I spend 10 years travelling the world, tracking where our stuff come from and where it goes. You know what I found out, that is not the whole story. There's a lot missing from this explaination. For one thing, this looks like fine. No problem. But the truth is it's a system incrases. And the reason why this system incrases it's a linner system and we live in a fine planet and you can not run a linner system on a finance planet in definitely. Every step on the way, this system is interacting the real world. In realize it's not happening in blank page. It's  cultures, invironment, and all along the way it's bumping up the limits. Limits we don't see here because the intire program is completed, so let's go back through, let's filling some blanks and see what's missing. Well one of the most important thing we miss is people. yes, people. People live and work all around the system. And some of the people in the system matter more than others. some have a little more say. Who are they. let's start with the government. Then my friends tell me I should .the government and that's ture in many countries and it's incerested in  afterall more than 50% paying our tax money is going to the military. but I'm using a person to simblize the government, because I heard a ture to vision and value.government should be owe the people, buy the people,full the people, it's the government's job watch out for us, to take care of us, that's their job. Then a long corporation now the reason why corporation is bigger than government . is it the corporation bigger than government? After 100 the largest economic on earth now, 51 are corporations. And as the corporation is growing in size and power, we see a little change in government .a little more conser everything work out for those guys than for us. OK, so let's see whatelse is missing for the system, we'll start with intracktion, which is the fancy world for the nature resourse explaintation, which the fancy world, for trashing the planet this looks like is we chop down the trees we bolden mountains..get a mettle inside..water and we ..the animals. So here, we are running out our first limit. We are running out resourses. We are using too much stuff. Well I know this can be hard to hear, but it's the truth, we got to deal with it. In the past three decades along.one third of the planet nature resourses  can consume, gone. We are cutting and midding..trashing the place so fast. The world undermining..bear ability for people to live here. When I live in United State, we have less than 4% forelist for us left. 40% of the water way are something undrinkable. And our problem is not just we using too much stuff, but we are using more than our share. We have 5% of the world's population, but we are using 30% of the world's resourses. Including 30% of the world's waste. If everybody consume the US waste, we will need three to five planets. And you know what, we've only got one. So my country resb.. limitation is simply to go take somebody esles. This is the third world, which some would say is someother world.. stuff..somebodyelse's land. So what that look like? The same thing trashing the place. 75% of global fish is not our fished..beyond the compacity. 80% of the planets force are gone. In the end of the loan, we lose 2000 trees a minute. That's 7 football fields a minute. what about the people who live here? Well, according to these guys, they don't own these resourses, they don't live for  generations, they don't productions,buy a lot of stuff, in this system, if you don't own or buy a lot of stuff, you don't have a value.
