P102 Exercise 7
Fill in the blanks with appropriate words.
（背诵第一篇）As is shown in the pictures, (From the pictures, we can see clear that) with the increase of commercial fishing, the number of fishes dramatically decreased. In one picture, there were various kinds of fish and only one fishing-boat in 1900. On the contrary, in 1995 there was only one fish, with many fishing-boats.
The purpose of this picture is to show us that due attention has to be paid to the decline of ocean resources. Owing to overfishing the number of fishes has obviously dropped. If we let this situation go/continue as it is, we do not know where fish will be in the future. By that time, our environment will suffer a great destruction.
Therefore, it is imperative for us to take drastic measures. For one thing, we should appeal to our authorities to make strict laws to control commercial fishing. For another, we should enhance the awareness of people that the ocean resources are very vital to us. Only in this way can we protect our ocean resources. Also I believe that we humans can overcome this difficulty, and we will have a brighter future.（背诵第一篇）

（背诵2）From the pictures, we can see clearly the relationship between people and the deserts. In the first picture, people are fleeing from greedy sand hills because they cut down all the trees. The caption reads: As the sand advances, we retreat. In the second picture, the people have returned carrying tools, water and young trees to plant the land again. The caption reads: As we advance, the sand retreats.（描述）
It seems to me that the cartoonist is sending a message about the importance of trees in water and soil conservation, and the need for everyone to fight against the danger of desertification. In fact, what he is saying is if we do not fight against the sandhills, the sandhiills will drive us away from the land. (In fact, what he is saying is that the sandhills will drive us away from the land if we do not fight against them.) If we let this situation go as it is, our environment will suffer a great destruction. (寓意)
The best way to fight back against the greedy desert is made clear in the second picture. There the local people are actively setting about the task of planting trees to reclaim(改造) the land and make it(代词的使用) fertile. The fact that（同位语）there are three people in the picture each with a different job(逻辑独立主谓结构，介词短语表示动态概念), suggest that (事实说明)working together is the key to success in the battle against soil erosion.(措施、建议)（背诵2）
