Since America president Obama claimed auto emissions, more and more people and countries keep their eyes on this issue. America is considered to be one of the strongest nations in the world. As a more developed country, if US become the leader of this behavior, it must have good influence on other countries. At first, many Americans agreed with Obama, but Obama decided to put huge amount money to make the policy work. This caused people objected his decision and just went the opposite way. They thought the government can do this by law or make a strick publishment, not costing so much money. In my opinion, I still think that this we can get more benefits than disadvantages of this policy.
Firstly, this kind of investment cannot just be measured by money. If people want to make the policy affective, it must cost money. No matter how much it cost, I think it is worthy. It is said that the global warming is becoming worse and worse, it will cost not only money if we still don't do anything for the environment.
Secondly, it can protect the environment. Air pollution is closely related to our daily life. Some countries that don't pay any attention to the environment have suffered from nature disasters every year. In some cases, auto emissions can protect the environment.
In addition, it contributes to the constant renewal of automobile technology. According to media sources, the plan by the United States welcomed the automotive industry. It allows car manufacturers no longer in production because of different state standards and at a loss, and leave the car manufacturers is relatively ample time to adapt to the new standards. However, this plan will make U.S. consumers purchase new cars each cost an average of 1300 U.S. dollars
In conclusion, the restrictions on vehicle exhaust emissions to ensure clean air, reducing the funds to deal with gas, but also improve the way of creating new cars.I want to stand up for supporting is policy.

Obama’s auto emission
According to J ohn Ibbitson in his article” Obama’s swift action on emissions shows he will be green-at any cost”, the president Obama promulgated a ordinance about limit car's displacement in order to save energy and protect environment. The governor of California felt happy and totally agreed with this ordinance. However, the governor of Michigan who is a Democrat thought this decision could affect the cars' imports and exports. Now, the problems about energy and environment and how to solve them have already been put in Obama's domestic agenda. He asked the department of transportation to decline the exhaust. This order was refused when Bush was president. Now, the governor of California is so happy that this order has been thought when Obama to be the president. There is really a historic significance for American; thereby they could get a better environment without the affection of fuel. However this new revolution will need a long time to be came true and it still a huge challenge to American's car producers. In addition, American also signed agreement of reduces emissions with other countries, states and provinces, which are in the north of American. However it will be opposed to the interests of coal and oil in some of these states. The ex-president did a little about how to make a clear environment (John, Jan 27).
In my opinion, I totally agree with president Obama’s idea. Although I am not an American citizen, take part in protecting our environment and save energy is still a goal for me. At present, more and more luxury cars produced, in order to satisfy people’s personal peacock. However, it must affect many vehicles’ producers’ benefits, and they do not want to change any more. As this result, Obama’s decision, which limits high displacement cars’ production, plays an important and necessary role in current serious situation. I think reduce the use of high displacement is one of the best way to save energy, protect environment and improve the technology of making cars.
First of all, it can save resource. The price of gas is keep rising because there are less and less gas and fuel in the world. In my opinion, the most important reason is there are two many car. In US, almost everyone owns his private car and each family at least own two car. Americans used to using cars instead of walking. The auto emissions can just set up limitation of using too much cars, it also can be a way to save energy.
Secondly, auto emission can help us to protect the environment. Car can pull out many dirty gases into the air, and finally causes the air pollution. If the auto emission works, people will take public transportation to work or get on one car to drive. This can reduce the bad gas and make the air cleaner and fresh.
In addition, if the car producers want to keep their profit by this policy, they have to create new kinds of car machine to make sure the pollution can be reduced. They will think about more advanced technology to produce cars. So the auto emission can inspire the new way of creating cars.
In conclusion, as I mentioned before, Obama’s auto emission is not only save energy but also good for the environment and the industry of making cars. This policy may help US developing healthier, so I want to stand up for supporting it.

Nowadays, with the high-speed development of the society and industry, more and more productions have been created to satisfy people's requirements. As a result, the damage of ozone layer has been destroyed rapidly as well. Under this situation, people not only need to work for how comfortable and convinent their life is, they also need to think about how to protect the earth that we live in. So, I strongly agree with Leahy's opinion in his article. In my opinion, reducing the use of refrigeration which created ozone damaging gas, decreasing the use of private vehicles and enhancing dissemination of ozone layer protection are three main ideas, so that we keep a good environment for every species on the earth.
First of all, scientists have already found some new gas that can be used in the refrigeration with the same function as the old CFC, an ozone damaging gas. Because probably most people have to use the refrigeration every day, trying to change this new kind of refrigeration could be the first and most useful way to decrease the ozone destruction. Now, many people do not want to change their refrigerations because they do not want to waste more money to buy a new one with almost the same function. However, after reading of the increasing number of ozone hole areas and people with skin cancer caused by ultraviolet radiation, we have to think about the environment of the whole world instead of ourselves；therefore, changing the old ozone-damaging refrigeration as soon as possible, transforms our earth better and better.
Secondly, with the rapid development of modern industry and standard of living, many people have the ability afford the private car for themselves. Many vehicle producers increase their cars’ comfort and speed，in order to satisfy users’ requirements. Whereas this problem getting worse, the more vehicles that are produced, more gas has been used for these vehicle to work. Because the gas from burning oil also can destroy ozone layer, more vehicles run in the street means more destruction of the ozone layer. As a result, many countries enough their people to take public transportation, thus reducomg the burning of oil, and declining the ozone-damaging gas that is let into the atmosphere.
Finally, I think the basic and normal way to reduce the process of ozone damaging is to let more and more people know how serious it would be if our life without ozone layer. For some people, who do not understand what the ozone layer is, and why it is important to people’s life, they will learn the importance of it and think of solutions of this problem.
In conclusion, the damage to the ozone layer is one of the more serious problems for us currently, and also finding a way to solve it as soon as possible is still important and necessary. Trying to change to use a refrigeration without powerful greenhouse gases, taking more public transformation instead of private cars and making more and more people understand how it is important to improve the protection of the ozone layer is the solution.

With the development of the economy, the relationship between countries is much stronger than before. However the practice of protectionism, which means the government does its utmost to protect their industries just goes the opposite way of globalization. The prices are unstable because of the reduction of imports or exports. People have fewer choices than before. Also, some countries set up a wall to prevent personnel who come from other countries to occupy jobs in their nations. Even people who get well educated still can’t be employed by big companies abroad. In addition, free trade is making more interdependence among nations and mutual understanding among cultures, and can help countries to maintain political stability. In my opinion, economic protectionism is a real risk. Protectionism can increase the misunderstanding between different nations, and cut the world into many pieces. That is why I think protectionism has bad influences on our life, and it should be one the most urgent problems for the people.
My mother always said I am good at eating, even though I don't know how to cook. I like trying to eat everything that I have never eaten before. When I saw this journal, it just reminds me of the most strange and maybe the hardest thing I have ever eaten.My hometown is famous for seafood, that day my mother bought some black, heavy thing to home and just put some water to cook it. It is just as same size as coin or a small button before cooking. After 5 minuets boiling in the hot water, it became bigger and some thing began to push out of the black out-coat. It is easy to cook but difficult for eating. You must break the out-coat and then eat the thing inside. Maybe my teeth were strong enough, I can't taste anyone for a long time.It was so hard that I am afraid that my teeth would be broken. That's true!! My father almost ate all of them, so later, I took a hammer and ate only a little bit. It was really delicious. I can't find the English name of this thing. But in China, we call it " hai bolou" , only my home can produce the most fresh of them and it can only be found in summer. Before I came to here, I was lucky to eat it again and this time people had created some small machine to make it easier to eat. Actually ,it looks ugly but taste so well. So I alway make jokes on it like, we can't adjust something by its appearance!! huh~
It must be a strange idea, but I really hope so.
