PAPER 2 - WRITING
You must answer this question. Write your answer in 140 – 190 words in an appropriate style.
In class you have been discussing global warming. Your teacher has asked you to summarise some of the effects of this phenomenon.
To be honest, with all the contrary information flying about these days as to whether this phenomenon actually exists or not, I really don’t know where I stand . What I do know is that there has been some severe local warming recently. We are now well into our third heatwave.
As for the effects of this global warming, here are some new trends from our friend Al Gore. On a more personal level here are mine: idleness, grumpiness, irritation, constant complaining and a general state of discomfort. Although I must admit this is a standard list of Anglo-Saxon traits when the weather is scorching.
To overcome these effects I have taken to sleeping in the garden. If you don’t have one of these, try the balcony, and if you have neither, invest in a fan, a cooler box and some ice. I have also taken to wearing loose clothing, which I have realised is not such a bad idea at my age. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated, so feel free to comment.
