To Make Environmental Protection a Habit
Good morning all teachers, judges, boys and girls:
My topic in this speech is To Make Environmental Protection a Habit
Sorry, I am used to it.
I didn’t do it deliberately, because nobody reminds me of it; I didn’t do it deliberately, because most of people do it as it is; I really didn’t do it deliberately, because I can’t find the trash can when I want to drop litter……
These words are the reason and also the reality.
“Habit” is developed through circulating and numerous repeated actions bit by bit. The development of habit not only needs correct publicity and guidance, but also corresponding actual and effective supporting facilities; just like the computer: environmental protection can be effectively realized through good quality software and hardware and their joint development. Otherwise, we may continue our habits according to current lifestyle.
Environmental protection is not just a slogan and we should start from petty things bit by bit: one deserted battery can make the land of one square meter permanently lost its application value; a discarded plastic bag can produce two negative effects of “visual pollution” and “potential hazard”. Rubbish accumulation bit by bit may let the earth in a state of devastation; falling down of trees may make our green land into desert; the foundation of the pollution source one after another will make our air not fresh any more.
Many a little makes a mickle. Great disaster usually derives from our original small action and our original little habits.
In the past, we usually sighed: what a beautiful earth! blue sky; green land, clear water. However, these beautiful sceneries are getting further and further away from us and becoming a state existed in fairy tale.
We already know that if we lost our planet we inhabited, human itself will face death too. We also know that human’s overtaking from nature has caused a series of revenge from nature, such as typhoon, rainstorm, snowstorm, flood, drought, insect attack and the intense heat of summer, etc. However, for environmental protection, the only answer we get is we know it. But is it ok for just knowing it? the answer is no. we shall not only know, but also do it. Doing it is another slogan, a running hoarse slogan.
Stop your steps and your hoarse throat. If you want to control action, just take action.
Take the following as an example: we have always taking about the dangers of drunk driving for many years. The result is accident still occurs frequently. However, after the introduction of the most strict new traffic rules in history, the drunk driving accident immediately decreased sharply. This is the power of policy and the power of action controlling action.
If someone is recognized and praised by everyone, his action has more executive force. This is the power of award.
As such, we shall introduce corresponding awards and punishment policy in environmental protection control. Heavy award and heavy punishment.
Under the circumstance of good quality software and hardware i.e. proper publicity and facilities, we may easily develop a habit. Under the encouragement of award and reminder of punishment, our life will become restrained and regular and we will sure be used to it. At that time, we do not need to pay more attention on environmental protection, because at that time, we are used to it.
Lift up a small grass at your convenience, plant a small tree at your convenience and classify the rubbish at your convenience; prepare green travel at any time and cherish our limited resources at all times……Treat our earth in a friendly way at any time in any place, the nature will repay us as before. At that time, there are still blue sky, green land and clear water…..
