Title: Truths about Global Warming

The paragraph interested me because Global Warming is really a strict worldwide environment problem in 21st century. The paragraph gived readers totally three numbers which had close contact with Global Warming. I liked this paragraph because of its way to show how serious Global Warming is, which was by three related scientific numbers, these numbers illustrated how much will Global Warming harm the world. The three parts were temprature of air, weight of Chloride dioxide and weight of carbon in air. In my opinion it’s a very good way to explain the truth, because the professional and accurate numbers could reflect the reality, which would seems cruel. The aim of this paragraph should be to remind people how dangerous would Global Warming be when it getting stronger in the future, especially when people don’t take measures to prevent it, so human must be vigilant to face this problem and use scientific method to cure or improve it.

Title: Prepare and decide life by yourself

This paragraph first interested me when I saw its title “Attitude” in the paragraphs of Life&Death part, because in human’s life, attitude is a really important thing even can deal with people’s whole life. This paragraph was actually a speech. I really liked this speech because the speaker gave the listeners many realistic examples from her life which could made resonance between people.For example, she talked about how she chose writer to be her worker by herself. She also pointed out some society truth nowadays, such as how fast the world is changing and actually how economics really is now. So she warned people “You may not be able to alter reality, but you can alter your attitude towards it, and this, paradoxically, alters reality.” and couraged people “Try it and see” at the end of the speech. This remind me of a long paragraph i used to read on a science magazine, which told people how to enjoy life and make choices in crucial moments. These speech hope people to make life choices positively by themselves and tried to suit the changing society, in my opinion, if i will do some choices i would not sure with, i must find this speech and preceive it again.
