If nothing is done to stop pollution, we will have no fresh air to breathe and no good environment to live.
C: Quite right. I don’t think we should burn the coal. We should spend more money on science to find a better way of using the coal. After having found out the way to burn it without pollution, not only can we burn the coal, but also we can protect our environment. D: What you said is right. But if we want to develop our area as soon as possible, we must burn the coal to get money. If we stop using the coal to wait for you to find a new way, how can we develop our area?
