6. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions on it.

Our planet is at risk. Our environment is under threat. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the seas we fish in, and soils we farm, the forests, animals, and plants that surround us are in danger. New terms and words describe these problems: acid rain, the greenhouse effect, global warming, holes in the ozone layer, desertification, and industrial pollution.
We are changing our environment. More and more gases and wastes escape from our factories. Rubbish, oil silages and detergents damage our rivers and seas. Forests give us timber and paper, but their loss results in soil erosion and also endangers wildlife.

The richer countries of the world are mainly responsible for industrial pollution. This is where most of all the commercial energy is produced. In developing countries, poverty cause people to change their environment, overgraze grassland, cut down trees for new land and firewood, to farm poor soil for food.

The United Nations Environmental Protection Agency says that an area of forest the size of Sierra Leone disappears every year. Trees are cut down for timber which is used for building, furniture, paper, and fuel. They are also destroyed to provide land on which to graze animals and build new villages and towns. But trees have many other important uses.

Trees protect the land from a heavy downpour of rain and their roots help to hold the soil together. Forests are also the home of many living things. The Amazon forest contains one-fifth of all the species of birds in the world. In our forests, there may be plants and animals which could help in the discovery of new medicines for crops.

To rescue and conserve our beautiful world, we must act cooperatively. Individuals, communities, nations, and international associations, all have the responsibility. By learning to protect the natural environment, we can manage the earth’s resources for generations to come.

(a) The risk referred to in the passage is of what origin?
(b) From the passage, it can be deduced that the inhabitants of developing countries ______
(c) According to the passage, the size of the forest depleted ______ annually.
(d) The writer holds the richer countries responsible for industrial pollution because of their what?
(e) The message of the writer of the passage is the need for what?

SECTION C SUMMARY [30 marks]
