ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS Paul Watson is an environmental activist. He is a man who believes that he must do something, not just talk about doing something. Paul believes in protecting endangered animals, and he protects them in controversial ways. Some people think that Watson is a hero and admire him very much. Other people think that he is a criminal. On July 16 th, 1979, Paul Watson and his crew were on his ship, which is called the Sea Shepherd. Watson and the people who work on the Sea Shepherd were hunting on the Atlantic Ocean near Portugal. However, they had a strange prey; instead of hunting for animals, their prey was a ship, the Sierra. The Sea Shepherd found the Sierra, ran into it and sank it. As a result, the Sierra never returned to the sea. The Sea Shepherd, on the other hand, returned to its home in Canada. Paul Watson and his workers thought that they had been successful. The Sierra had been a whaling ship, which had operated illegally. The captain and the crew of the Sierra did not obey any of the international laws that restrict whaling. Instead, they killed as many whales as they could, quickly cut off the meat, and froze it. Later, they sold the whale meat in countries where it is eaten. Paul Watson tried to persuade the international whaling commission to stop the Sierra. However, the commission did very little, and Paul became impatient. He decided to stop the Sierra and other whaling ships in any way that he could. He offered to pay $25,000 to anyone who sank any illegal whaling ship, and he sank the Sierra. He acted because he believes that the whales must be protected. Still, he acted without the approval of the government; therefore, his actions were controversial.

UNICEF has provided immunization to millions of children against potentially fatal diseases, such as diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, measles, polio, and tuberculosis. UNICEF's promotion of basic health- care delivery systems and treatments, such as rehydration therapy for children suffering from diarrhea, has also contributed to dramatic reductions in child mortality. In response to the global epidemic of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), UNICEF works to prevent the transmission of AIDS and human immunodeficiency virus (VHS) in young people and to obtain medicine for infected individuals. It also helps communities, especially those in sub-Saharan Africa, care for the millions of children orphaned by the death of their parents from AIDS. C. UNICEF receives financial support from more than 150 national governments. Like many international aid organizations, however, UNICEF faces shrinking government subsidies for the work it

Dinosaurs were reptiles that lived during a period of earth’s history called the Mesozoic Era, which is known as the Age of Reptiles. The first dinosaurs appeared more than 200 million years ago. For many millions of years, they dominated the land with their huge size and strength. Then about 65 million years ago, they died out rather suddenly, never fo reemerge. The word dinosaur comes from two Greek words meaning “terrible lizard”. Dinosaurs were not lizards, but their appearance could be truly terrifying. The biggest ones weighed more than ten times as much as a mature elephant and nearly equaled the size of most modern—day whales. The famous kinds of dinosaurs, including the brontosaur and tyrannosaurus rex, reached 80 to 90 feet in length. Not all dinosaurs were giants, however, some were actually no larger than a chicken. Scientists still do not know what caused dinosaur to disappear. One theory involves a change in the earth’s climate. It is believed that temperature dropped significantly towards the end of the Cretaceous Period. Too large to hibernate and not having fur or feathers for protection, it is possible that the climate became too chilly for dinosaurs. In contrast, other species having protection, such as the mammals and birds, were able to survive. 1. What is the best title for this passage? A. The History of Earth B. Earth’s Largest Reptiles. C.

It varied quite greatly. 5. Which of the following can be inferred about mammals and birds. A. They preceded the dinosaurs. B. They could not survive the chilly temperatures C. Most have either fur or feathers over their bodied. D. They were too large to hibernate. V.

But to date, that process has proven expensive. Other experiments are underway to harness power with giant windmills. Geothermal power, heat from the earth, is also being tested. Some experts expect utility companies to revive hydroelectric power provided one third of the electricity used in the United States, but today it supplies only 4 percent.

  18. The sun today is a yellow dwarf star. It is powered by thermonuclear reactions near its center that change hydrogen into helium. The sun has existed in its present state for about 4 billion, 600 million years and is thousands of time greater than the earth. By studying other stars, astronomers can predict what the rest of the sun’s life will be like. About 5 billion years from now, the core of the sun will become smaller and hotter. The surface temperature will fall. The higher temperature of the centre will increase the rate of thermonuclear reactions. The outer regions of the sun will expand approximately 35 million miles, about the distance to Mercury, which is the closest planet to the sunt.The sun will then be a red giant star. Temperatures on the earth will become too hot for life to exist. Once the sun has used up its thermonuclear energy as a red giant, it will begin to shrink. After it becomes smaller to the size of the earth, it will become a white dwarf star. The sun may throw off huge amounts of gases in violent eruptions called nova explosions as it changes from a red giant to a white dwarf After billions of years as a white dwarf, the sun will, have used up all its fuel and will have lost its heat. I. What is the primary purpose of this passage? A. To alert people to the dangers posed by the sun. B. To discuss conditions on earth in the far future. C. To present a theory about red giant stars. D. To describe changes that the sun will go through. 2. It can be inferred from the passage that. the sun: A. is approximately halfway through its life as a yellow dwarf. B. has been in existence for ten billion years C. will continue as a yellow dwarf for a ten billion years. D. is rapidy changing in. size and brightness 3. What will probably he the first stage of change as the sun becomes a red giant? A. Its core will cool off air use less fuel. B. Its surface will become hotter and shrink. C. its sun will throw off huge amounts of gases. D. Its centre will grow smaller and hotter. 4. When the sun becomes a red giant, what will conditions be like on earth? A. its atmosphere will freeze and become B. It will be enveloped in the expanding surface of the sun. C. It will become too hot for life to exist. D. It will be destroyed in nova explosions. 5. As a white dwarf, the sun will be: A. the same size as the planet Mercury. B. thousands of times smaller than it is today. C. around 35 million miles in diameter. D. cold and dark.
