The CO2 lets sunlight enter the earth?s atmosphere and the earth. However, it does not let as much heat leave the atmosphere and enter the space. It is like a blanket. The heat can pass from the sun through the blanket to warm the earth. The heat stays there and cannot go out through the blanket again.
Scientists call this the greenhouse effect. They say we must start planning now. We mustn?t burn too much oil, gas, and wood.
However, other scientists . They say there is no reason to worry because we have thirty years to plan. They believe there is for the world to slow this down or stop it. We just have to prepare for a high temperature world.

In every class there are some students who do very well and some who do not. That doesn?t why a student does not do well. Perhaps the person is very smart but doesn?t write exams very well. Perhaps they lazy and do not know how to study and don?t study hard. Perhaps, in fact, they are not smart at all. The exam results don?t really tell you that; they simply tell you how well you

have done compared with students at the same grade level as you are. In other words, exams do not measure (衡量) accurately how smart you are because they can?t measure that.

It was midday when I got the call that my grandfather was not well and his condition was rapidly getting worse. My family did not know how long he had left. People had been visiting him throughout the day and were basically saying good-bye.
I knew I had to get to the hospital to tell him how much I loved him. When I got to the hospital, I hurriedly searched for his hospital room. I walked to my grandfather?s bed and quietly whispered, “ Hello, Grandpa.”
I pulled up a chair and began talking to him. While I asked about
his condition(状况), he told me, “ I?ll be fine. ” although we both
knew that wasn?t true. Then he asked me with a smile how I was
I felt special when my grandpa wanted to know how I was doing.
I knew I wasn?t there to tell him how I was doing. I made the decision
that I had to show my thanks to him. I clutched his hand. From the
expression on my face, he knew I had something important to say.
Drawing nearer to him, I said, “ Grandpa, I have to tell you something.” By this time, the tears were streaming down my face. All of years of love that I had not let him know, had become free.
I took a deep breath. In doing this, our eyes locked. Our eyes spoke more than words ever could. I burst out, “ Grandpa, I just want to let you know how much l love you. I hope you already know that; yet I just wanted to make sure. ”
He said smilingly, “ I know. Thank you for telling me that. All I have on this planet is my family and my love for them. If there is anything I could ask of you, I want you to be good to your family. That?s all I want of you.” I promised him that I would.
What I learned that day changed my life. From then on, I began telling people how much I love them, care for them, and respect (尊重)them.
