perfect story, please add some more

That story was good

i think it is a good story to introduce the children about why they, generally all people to give attention about their behavior that it contribute to all of universe

By Hearing this we should be ashamed.

Cute story. Well written. It is sad what humans and our pollution is doing to polar bears. I photograph the polar bear moms and babies yearly and can't imagine not having the opportunity to see them again.

It's wonderful story. In my opinion , we should stop the unplanned huge production of different goods and buildings. I wonder where is the role of international orginization in nature protection? I think it should be a balancing process between the international economic control and nature protection organization.


Good One !!!
When i am reading the story it seems like too lengthy and later on interesting, it clearly explains the worries of global warming produced by the humans and which cause lot of damage to the humans as well as other wild like animals.
"Prevention is better than cure" we have to take appropriate actions to reduce the global warming like, reducing the usage of Motors, refrigerators in earlier stage than later stage and growing trees will benefit a lot to protect global warming.
It's not going to happen with one country , all countries together and make a decision towards the global warming.
The story attracted me, at least i will plant a tree as a duty against protection of global warming.

It´s sad that all the beauty of nature people are destroying their behavior.
The worst is that it kills nature, animals and people apart.
Already extinct many species of animals and our selfish behavior.
Sometimes ashamed, of the fact that I´m human.

Dear Adam! Nowadays I'm preparing for IELTS (academic) and britishcouncil is helping me in most cases Thanks for that! I look some IELTS books and I thinks it is a bit difficult to me so far. after that I'm hesitating that I will be able to get best score at IELTS and study abroad. My level is intermediate. All I want is I need some useful tips to get best score at IELTS (academic). Can you help me what I should do/ Please! I wait for your answer.

Poor Polar bears! The world is warmer and warmer day by day.
People use air conditioner to make ourselves cool, people use motor cars to go from one place to  another place faster, people use mobile phones and computers to communicate each other around the world, people clear the green grass and forest to build more buildings, more factories and roads, and they forget about the global warming. 
In city, we don't have a place to plant a tree. I'm thinking if we can plant a tree each, there will be 7 billion trees for our next generation. Isn't it a good idea? 
How do you think?
