As is shown in the pictures, we can see clearly the struggle (battle, fight) between desert and people. In one picture, people are fleeing the greedy (overwhelming) desert. The caption indicates that as the sand advanced, we retreat. On the contrary, the second picture depicts people carrying tools, young trees and water to plant to the earth again. The words demonstrate that as we force on. The sandhills withdraw(recede).
The purpose of the two picture is to show us that due attention has to be paid to the harms of the desertification (desert expansion). Owing to people’s rampant clear cutting, desert is rapidly occupying our living space. In particular, the sharp increase of the sand storms is sounding an alarm to us human being. If we let this situation to go as it is, our environment will suffer a great destruction.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Therefore (As the result, in conclusion, thus, hence, accordingly, in my opinion), it is imperative for us to take drastic measure. For one thing, we should appeal to our authorities to work out concrete laws to control deforestation (the cutting of trees). For another, we should also enhance the people’s awareness that forest resources are very vital to us. Only in this way can we protect our natural resources. Also I believe that we can defeat the desertification, and we’ll have a brilliant future.
