A Marine Refuge
  When the regime could no longer refute the evidence, they finally approved rehabilitating the coral reef and making it into a marine refuge. Money earned from recycling would be relegated to paying for the refuge and a portion of redundant government refunds would pay for the rehabilitation . Everyone rejoiced and raised their refreshments into the air to toast that their hard work would be redeemed with nature being restored. And as the news was relayed throughout the country no one could rein in his or her excitement as they reeled from the joy of success.
  But some knew that this was just the rehearsal for a larger battle against companies that were given free reign to destroy marshes with rare reeds. The referees for this battle would not be so easy to influence. The companies that they would have to battle had already reeled off a refrain of praise for their own enviromental acts in other places. And their regiment of company paid news reporters who had already reined over the issue on TV and in the nespaper. They were determined not to let this reign end as well.
  But first they would enjoy this victory as much as they could. Victories were few and far between, why spoil the celebration with thoughts of the next battle. So they partied and praised the regime for its recognition that nature should be protected and sometimes restored.

水下避难所
  当政府再也无法驳倒证据时,他们终于同意修复这座珊瑚并把它建成一个水下避难所。通过回收利用废物赚来的钱将被降级使用用来支付避难所的开支,部分多余的政府退款将用于支付修复费。每个人都充满喜悦,他们把点心举到空中祝他们的勤奋工作会通过修复自然得到补偿。随着消息在全国各地转播,谁也不能控制住他或她的激动,因为他们都被胜利的喜悦冲了头脑。
  但是有一些人知道,这不过是一次更大的战役的排练,他们要与一些公司做斗争,这些公司被给予充分自由可以破坏芦苇本已稀少的沼泽地。这场斗争的仲裁者将很难发挥影响力。他们将要与之斗争的那些公司已经一口气说出了经常重复的表扬,因为他们在其他地方也有保护环境的举动,而且他们的公司团体买通了那些对该问题拥有控制权的电视台和报社的新闻记者,他们决不会失掉这种已经取得的统治地位
  但是首先他们要尽可能地享受这次胜利。胜利不是常有而且来之不易,为什么要因为想着下一次战役而影响这一次的庆祝,所以他们举行聚会,表扬政府承认应当保护自然,并且有时候还要恢复自然。
