Listen to the text and answer the questions.
A long time ago most towns and villages were very small. The number of people who lived in every country was much smaller than it is today too. There was no heavy industry, only agriculture and arts and crafts, and none of these things destroyed our environment. People didn’t use chemicals. There were no cars. There were no factories. There was very little pollution.
Sadly, our environment is much dirtier now than it was in the past. This is a problem because the best way for us to be healthy is to live in a clean environment.
The air and water are much dirtier than they used to be. The air is full of pollutants of various kinds — smoke from cars and factories, and such things as insect sprays. The water is polluted with chemicals from factories and split oil from ships. This means that we are gradually destroying one of our major food sources — the oceans of the world.
We should try to find ways of making our environment cleaner and stopping future pollution. We should learn how we can help to make the world a cleaner and healthier place.
1) Were towns and villages bigger a long time ago?
2) Is the world cleaner now than in the past?
