You might think that "global warming" means nothing more than a rise in the world′s tempera-ture. But rising sea levels caused by it have resulted in the first evacuation ( 撤离 ) of an island na-tion-the citizens of Tuvalu will have to leave their homeland.

During the 20th century′, sea level rose $ -12 inches. As a result,Tuvalu has experienced low-land flooding of salt water which has polluted the country′s drinking water.

Paani Laupepa, a Tuvaluan government official, reported to the Earth Policy Institute that the nation suffered an unusually high number of fierce storms in the past ten years. Many scientists con-nect higher surface water temperatures resulting from global warming to greater and more damaging storms.

Laupepa expressed dissatisfaction with the United States for refusing to sign the Kyoto Protocol,an international agreement calling for industrialized nations to reduce their greenhouse gas emis-sioins, which are a main cause of global warming. "By refusing to sign the agreement, the US has effeetivly taken away the freedom of future generations of Tuvaluans to live where their forefathers have lived for thousands of years," Laupepa told the BBC.

Tuvalu has asked Australia and New Zealand to allow the gradual move of its people to both countries.

Tuvalu is not the only country that is vulnerable (易受影响的 )to rising sea levels. Manmoon Gayoon, president of the Maldives, told the United Nations that global warming has made his country of 311,000 an "endangered nation".

第38题单选 Laupepa was not satisfied with the United States because it did not __________.

A.agree to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions

B.sign an agreement with Tuvalu

C.allow Tuvaluans to move to the US

D.believe the problems facing Tuvalu were real

第39题单选 The country whose situation is similar to that of Tuvalu is__________.

C.the Maldives

D.the United States

 

Thomas Alva Edison was awarded more patents( 专利 )on inventions than any other American.

When he died in 1931, Americans wondered how they could best show their respect for him. One suggestion was that the nation observe a minute or two of total black-out. All electric power would be shut off in homes, streets and factories.

Perhaps this suggestion made Americans realize fully what Edison and his inventions meant to them. Electric power was too important to the country. Shutting it off for even a short time would have led to complete confusion. A black-out was out of the question.

On the day of Edison′s funeral, many people silently dimmed their lights. In this way they honored the man who had done more than anyone else to put the great force of electricity at his countrymen′s fingertips.

Zhao Wenxuan, a film star from Taiwan has been fond of seeing films since his childhood. He would sometimes go to the cinema for the same film four or five times. He also enjoys literature (文学) and art. Before he took the fihn acting as his career( 职业), he has been on the staff( 工作人员 )of an airline in Taibei. His change of job to acting was quite by chance.

One day,he came across in the paper an advertisement for a leading actor to appear in the film named Wedding Feast. Full of excitement, he answered the job ad by telephoning the director of the film, Mr. Li An. It was this telephone call that had changed all his life. At last the director decided him to be the very person for the role. That he could be chosen owed much to his good command of English, natural manners and low pay for this work in the film.

The film Wedding Feast proved to be a hit. It won the German Golden Bear Award and entered the competition for one of the Oscar Academy Awards. Also, it was the first Taiwan film that was per-mitted to be shown in the U. S. Thanks to the fihn Zhao Wenxuan became popular in Taiwan,Hongkong and Southeast Asia.

In 1994, Mr. Zhao acted as leading role in the Hongkong film Red Rose and White Rose, in which many film stars like Ms. Chen Chong from U. S. and Mr. Ye Yuqing from the local area took parts in it. This film was named for 10 prizes of the Taiwan Golden Horse Prize and at last it was awarded five prizes for the best play, actress and music. Zhao has regarded the film as one of his favorite films since he stepped into the acting circle.

Since 1993, Mr. Zhao has taken part in the shooting of 13 films, most of which are highly thought of.

Mr. Zhao said that Taiwan should think to cooperate (合作) much with the mainland in the film producing industry and it would benefit each other. In recent years he often came to the mainland for film shooting. He has just completed his performance in the film Night ~ Dawn directed by Mr. Sung Kee Chiu, a director frown Hong Kong.

 

第44题单选 When he was very young, Zhao Wenxuan__________.

A.was a movie fan

B.wanted to be a photographer

C.would love to be an actor

D.was eager to be a painter

第45题单选 Why could Zhao Wenxuan play the leading role in the movie Wedding Feast?

A.Because he liked to see films very much.

B.Because he could speak English very well, acted naturally and cared little about the pay for his work.

C.Because he was a famous actor at that time.

D.Because the director of the movie knew him very well.

第46题单选 The text suggest that__________.

Around the world more and more people are taking part in dangerous sports and activities.Of course,there have always been people who have looked for adventure--those who have climbed the highest mountains,explored(探险)unknown parts of the world or sailed in small boats across the greatest oceans.Now,however,there are people who seek(寻找)an immediate thrill(令人激动的事情)from a risky activity which may only last a few minutes or even seconds.

I would consider bungee(蹦极)jumping to be a good example of such an aetwity.You jump from a high place(perhaps a bridge or a hot air balloon)200 metres above the ground with an elas-tic(弹性的)rope tied to your ankles.You fall at up to 150 kilometres an hour until the rope stops you from hitting the ground.It is estimated that 2 million people around the world have now tried bungee jumping.Other activities which most people would say are as risky as bungee jumping involve(包括)jumping from tall buildings and diving into the sea from the top of high cliffs.

Why do people take part in such activities as these?Some psychologists(心理学家)suggestthat it is because life in modern societies has become safe and borin9.Not very long ago,people’s lives were constantly under threat.They had to go out and hunt for food,diseases could not easily be cured,and life was a continuous battle for survival.

Nowadays,according to many people,life offers little excitement.They live and work in comparatively safe environments;they buy food in shops;and there are doctors and hospitals to look after them if they become ill. The answer for some of these people is to seek danger in activities such as bungee jumping.

A.Dangerous Sports--What and Why?

第49题单选 In bungee jumping,you __________.

A.jump as high as you can

B.slide down a rope to the ground

C.attach yourself to a rope and fall to the ground

D.fall towards the ground without a rope

第50题单选 People probably take part in dangerous sports nowadays because __________.

A.they have a lot of free time
