Anglistics Study Programme TEXT 1 • Environmental campaigners have called for a ban on traffic in the city centre. This comes after pollution levels were found to be dangerously high for two years running. The campaigners’ plans to turn the city centre into a car-free zone have met with support from city residents. Campaign spokesman Derek Shields said: ‘Closing the city centre to traffic would result in lower carbon emissions and make the city a more pleasant place to live in. It’s time for the city authorities to step in and address this problem. ’
Anglistics Study Programme TEXT 2 Big supermarkets are producing billions of singleuse plastic bags each year despite charges that are designed to reduce their use by the public. The UK’s 10 leading supermarkets, continue to put plastic bags into their shops three years after the introduction of 5 p charges under EU law. Data gathered by Greenpeace and published on Thursday reveal that the supermarkets are putting 810, 000 tonnes of single-use plastic packaging on to the market every year. The figures confirm a Guardian investigation that showed that leading supermarkets refuse to be open about the amount of plastic they put on to the market.
Anglistics Study Programme The greenhouse effect – efekat staklene baste Green houses gases (GHG) – gasovi sa efektom staklene baste Exhaust gas/ flue gas – izduvni gasovi Carbon footprint – ugljenicni otisak (karbonski otisak predstavlja ukupnu količinu GHG* emisija (*GHG , eng. greenhouse gases – gasovi koji izazivaju efekat staklene bašte) koje direktno ili indirektno proizvode pojedinci, organizacije, događaji ili produkti. Karbonski otisak je mera našeg uticaja na životnu sredinu i klimatske promene, a izražava se u tonama (ili kilogramima) ekvivalenata ugljen-dioksida) Emission – emisija We must take action to cut vehicle emissions (Moramo da preduzmemo mere kako bismo smanjili emisiju gasova iz motornih vozila) The Government has proposed measures to reduce harmful emissions from traffic (Vlada je predlozila mere za smanjenje emisije stetnih gazova iz vozila)
