温哥华迎来了一天的甘露

终于下雨啦!!!

在经历了将近一个月的干燥艳阳天, 见过由于山火燃烧的烟雾笼罩的天空和闻到市区内弥漫的硝烟味, 感受了因储水下降而逐步提升用水限制的担忧后, 大温地区终于迎来了一个下雨天, 见到久违的雨滴, 积水和路基边的急流. 我想不仅人们在欢呼, 植物也一定在庆幸得到甘露. 这天天气特别清凉, 紫外光也稍微收敛了, 而我, 也不用在路上左躲右闪地找树阴.

这段时间山火和用水问题一直在本地主要新闻榜上有名. 大温地区得天独厚, 在这里, 我们有充足的水资源, 而且还是优质的食用水. 我们早已习惯了无忧无虑地用水. 这种养尊处优使我们渐渐失去危机感和防范于未然的思考能力. 终于, 老天爷开难题给我们了: 山火不断增多, 用水限制逐级提升, 人们开始要储蓄用过的水去浇自己种的植物……种种不便不仅影响着我们的日常生活, 还消耗了政府不少财力.

因此, 希望通过这次的小灾难, 人们能够重新检讨自己的用水习惯, 培养尊重公众利益的道德观, 更要坚守我们的承诺: 继续环保, 爱护自然. 这样, 人类才能与大自然和平共处, 达到天人合一.

Vancouver, used to be called ‘ Raincouver’, has recently encountered the Water problem in this summer because it has been continuous hot and dry and no rain since late June. Water restrictions applied and stage 3 is now in effect though we had a rainy day eventually on July 24.

For our future, it’s necessary to review the use of drinking water in our daily lives. Limiting wasting water and recycling used water for plants and flushing toilet are efficient ways to save water.
