倡导低碳,呵护地球

As is symbolically illustrated in the picture, a lovely baby is sleeping comfortably on the beautiful earth with a little bird singing over him. In the drawing, a huge green umbrella shelters the baby and the earth from the threatening outside world. The caption indicates that we should advocate low carbon economy and cherish the earth.

The painter aims at reminding us the relationship between low carbon economy and environmental protection. In the first place, low carbon economy is crucial to sustainable economic development. Economic expansion causes irreparable damage to our environment. A fragile ecological environment, insufficient environmental capacity and shortage of resources are becoming critical problems hindering the world’s development. If we want to achieve sustainable development, environmental protection should be integrated into our economic endeavors. Low carbon economy will have a direct impact on the overall situation of the world’s modernization drive and its long-term development. In the second place, environmental protection is in line with traditional Chinese culture. One of the core principles of traditional Chinese culture is to maintain harmony between man and nature. Many philosophies from Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism have emphasized the significance of a balanced environment. As an old Chinese saying goes, “Forefathers plant trees so future generations can enjoy the shade.” Protecting our environment and preserving a healthy environment for future generations goes hand in hand with Chinese culture.

Generally speaking, low carbon economy is indispensable for sustainable development. Haunted by various environmental problems, we should put the low carbon economy at the core of our economic development plans and solve wide-ranging environmental problems before they evolve into environmental crisis.

如图象征性所示,一个可爱的婴儿正舒适地睡在美丽的地球上,一只小鸟在他身旁歌唱。在图画中,一只巨大的绿伞保护婴儿和地球不受可怕的外部世界的侵害。文字说明显示:倡导低碳、呵护地球。

画家旨在提醒我们低碳经济与环境保护之间的关系。首先,低碳经济对经济的可持续发展至关重要。经济的发展给我们的环境带来无法弥补的损失。脆弱的生态环境、环境容量不足和资源短缺现在成为阻碍世界发展的至关重要的因素。如果我们想持续发展,那么保护环境就必须与经济发展所做出的努力紧密结合。低碳经济将对世界的现代化进程和长期发展目标产生直接影响。其次,保护环境应该与传统的中国文化保持一致。中国传统文化的一个核心原则是维护人类和大自然的和谐统一。儒家、道家和佛家思想中的很多哲理都强调一个和谐的环境的重要性。中国有句古话:“前人栽树,后人乘凉“。因此,保护我们现在的环境、为后代维护健康的环境与传统的中国文化是一脉相承的。

总之,低碳经济对可持续发展来说是必不可少的。各种各样的环境问题困扰着世界,因此我们应该把低碳经济放在经济发展计划的核心位置,在各种各样的环境问题演变为环境危机之前解决他们。
