Feifei
欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。大家好,我是冯菲菲。 

Roy
… and me, Roy. 

Feifei
我刚才看到你在回收垃圾,值得表扬!And is that a reusable bag? 

Roy
Yes, I'm saving the world one bag at a time! I was reading an article about the climate emergency that our world is facing. 

Feifei
看来你是看到我放在你桌子上的那篇文章了。I thought you'd find it interesting and it might help you to become more of an eco-warrior like me. I’m Super Feifei – Queen of Recycling and you can be my helper, Roybot. 

Roy
What? You've given yourself a superhero name and called me Roybot! Why am I the helper? 

Feifei
Because you're not as cool as me – plus someone needs to fight this climate emergency. 

Roy
Right, well, if giving yourself a superhero name encourages you to help the planet, I support you, Super Feifei! Why don't we talk about some other ways we can fight the climate emergency? 

Feifei
Indeed, we will, Roybot. Right after these examples… 

Examples
We need to do more to tackle the climate emergency. 

Scientists have declared a climate emergency in response to the melting ice caps.

We’ve taken up recycling in order to fight the climate emergency.

Feifei
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。这期节目中我们给大家介绍的表达是 “climate emergency(气候紧急状态)”。它指的是一种需要采取紧急行动来缓解或遏制气候变化,以避免引发不可逆转的环境破坏的状况。

Roy
Well, we've already talked about using re-usable bags and recycling, but what about investing in renewable energy sources such as wind and solar? 

Feifei
Yes! I have solar panels on my roof to power my superhero base. “Solar panels (太阳能电池板)”。 

Roy
Also, cutting down your meat consumption can really help. I am vegetarian, but just a reduction of the amount of meat you eat can help in the battle against the climate emergency. 

Feifei
And what about cycling? That's much better instead of using cars or taxis. 

Roy
I thought as a superhero, you might be able to fly. 

Feifei
No, I'm trying to reduce fumes by not flying. Cycling for me. Bye, Roybot! 

Roy
Bye!
