#83: 雾霾中的中国

服务=服雾?

最近一段时间,中国的很多城市笼罩在一片雾霾当中。空气的质量很差,人们只好带着口罩出门。很多在户外的活动都取消了。那雾霾究竟是什么?到底是什么原因导致了这么严重的雾霾?

雾霾,也叫烟霞,简单地说,就是空气中含有大量的灰尘和水分。雾霾天,外面是白茫茫一片。能见度很低,也就是说,人们能看清楚东西的距离很短。所以根本看不见蓝天和白云了。雾霾天,出门比较危险。开车的人只好打开车灯,降低速度。学校也只能停课。老人和孩子尽可能待在家里不出门。想出门 运动的人也只好放弃了。雾霾对人的身体有严重的危害,会引起人的疾病。最直接的,就是会影响人的呼吸系统。在北方的一些大城市,特别是北京,雾霾尤其严重。有一次,我在北京打车,就听司机抱怨说,在北京生活,寿命会缩短。

对于为什么会有雾霾,一般人都明白这个原因。中国正在快速地发展经济,但是在政治和环境保护上,还很落后。大量的工厂和建筑工地,燃煤发电,以及汽车尾气,是造成雾霾的最主要原因。现在,人们意识到了这个问题的严重性,决定开始治理环境。不过,还有一些不负责任的“专家”和媒体却提出了一些非常可笑的说法。比如:雾霾来自厨房。因为中国人在厨房里炒菜,会产生大量的烟。于是就产生了雾霾。还有人说,是燃放烟花爆竹,点蚊香产生了雾霾,等等。有人开玩笑说,如果没有这些“专家”和媒体,中国的雾霾可能不会这么严重。

    Hi Xinyu,

    Thank you so much for your resources, they are brilliant. I use some of them for my students here in the UK to prepare them for their Pre-U exams (equivalent to Chinese 高考).

    I would be good if I could download the audio so I could put it in my MP3 player and practice listening. Is that possible?

        Thanks. Sorry I missed your comment to Carmel. I don't use Chrome, but Safari also allows viewing the page source. I noticed that lingQ has lessons from your material.

    Hi, thanks so much for your wonderful, ongoing work!
    In the past I have been able to download the audio from your site. It has been a while since I was here, and now I can't see how I can download it. Is it that I can't find it, or are you not putting a download link there any more?
    kind regards.

      Open the page source (on Chrome, right-click in the page and say "View Source")

      Search for the string "mp3". You will find a direct link to the MP3. Click on the link, it will open in a new window.

      Right-click in that window and "Save".

    昕煜好,现在我住在荷兰,但是每年秋季在南京有工作。在荷兰天气也环境最清楚,在南京我住的小区秋季的天气不错,因为是玄武湖和紫山很近。

    《为人民服务》同声《喂人民服雾》啊!“serve the people" = "feed the people smog". A great example of why Chinese is such a cool language. Thanks for these podcasts, 感谢你送给我们这个《服务》,但是在我的脑袋里还有《雾霾》!

    • 你说得对,中文很有趣!这个有趣的说法是我在微博上发现的,觉得很好玩儿!你是不是在中国?注意保护,不要吸太多的雾霾。
