M: Hey, Cathy, did you read this article in the magazine? I can't believe how much man is changing the planet.
W: Yeah, I had a look at it. Quite interesting I suppose if you believe that sort of thing.
女：是的，我看了一眼 。我觉得很有趣，如果你相信那档子事的话 。
M: What? What do you mean,"if you believe that sort of thing"? Are you saying you don't believe that we are damaging the planet?
W: To be honest, Mark, not really.
M: What are you saying? Are you saying global warming isn't a fact, deforestation isn't a fact, the greenhouse effect isn't actually happening?
W: Hey, calm down Mark. I just think too many people take these things as being definitely true without knowing all the facts.
女：嘿，马克，冷静点 。我只是觉得，太多人把这些事当作绝对真实的了，却并不知道全部事实 。
M: You really don't think global warming is happening. You know they've said sea levels are going to rise by quite a few meters over the next fifty to a hundred years. Weather conditions are getting worse all over the world. Can you remember how many big hurricanes there have been in this country over the last few years? I think evidence is all around us.
男：你真的不觉得全球变暖正在发生 。你知道的，他们说，在今后的50年到100年，海平面将要上涨数米 。全球的天气状况都在变差 。你还能想起，过去几年内这个国家经历了多少场大型飓风吗？我觉得证据就在我们身边 。
W: I don't think we have enough information to be honest. We've only been measuring these things for around two or three hundred years. We have no idea what was happening 50,000 years ago. For all we know, this is just a natural blip, a kind of sudden but temporary change, in the whole climate cycle. I don't think we should change how we're living just because of twenty years of abnormal measurements.
女：说实话，我觉得我们并没有充足的信息 。我们只是测量了两三百年的这些数据 。我们并不知道5万年前发生了什么 。我们所知的就是，在整个气候循环里，这只是大自然的一段插曲、一种虽突然但短暂的改变 。我觉得我们不应该仅仅因为20年的反常测量结果而改变我们的生活方式 。
M: And don't you think all the other effects we're having on the planet are destructive?
W: What do you mean?
M: I mean, like, deforestation, overpopulation, threatening the existence of many endangered animals, pollution of the air and the seas... I mean, I could go on if you want!
W: No, no... I understand what you're saying and, yes, it's true that there are several problems worldwide caused by human influence. I think the destruction of the Amazon rainforest is really dangerous and it's something we could live to regret. I read somewhere that they were considered to be the "lungs of the planet" and there we are happily chopping it all down. And it would be a shame to lose some of those animals that may become extinct, you know, like the rhino or the panda. But I think we shouldn't interfere with nature. If they are going to become extinct, then we have to allow nature to take its course.
女：不，不……我明白你说的话，是的，世界上的确有许多问题是由人类影响造成的 。我觉得亚马逊热带雨林的破坏真的很危险，我们对此悔恨终生 。我在什么地方读到过，说它们被认为是“地球之肺”，而我们却很开心地把它们全部砍掉 。而且失去了一些可能会灭绝的动物，你知道的，比如犀牛和熊猫，这太遗憾了 。但我认为我们不应该干预大自然 。如果它们要灭绝，那我们必须让大自然顺其自然 。
M: You've just contradicted yourself in two sentences, Cathy. First you said it's bad that we're interfering with nature by destroying the rainforest and then...
W: That's not the same thing!
M: Well, of course it is! The only reason 99% of these animals are endangered is precisely because WE are threatening their habitats, either by chopping it down as you say or by expanding towns and farming into areas where these animals normally live and hunt. You can't destroy an animal's habitat and then turn around and say we can't interfere with nature to save it.
男：这当然是！99%的这些动物濒临灭绝的唯一原因正是我们威胁到了它们的栖息地，要么就像你说的砍掉，要么扩大城镇规模、去这些动物通常居住和捕猎的地方耕作 。你不能毁掉一个动物的栖息地，然后转过来说，我们不能通过干预大自然来拯救它 。
W: I don't think having twenty panda cubs in zoos around the world is a very smart way to save an animal. It's totally artificial and is cruel to the animals involved.
女：我觉得全世界的动物园里有20个熊猫宝宝并不是一个拯救动物的聪明方法 。这完全是虚假的，而且对相关动物十分残忍 。
M: I would go along with that, yes. The real solution is to save the animal's original habitat...
