Garbage in Yangtze River.

There are garbage islands in China’s Yangtze River after the terrible flood.

Flood caused garbage islands in China's Yangtze River

In some part, the garbage were so thick that people can stand on it.

Branches from fallen trees.

Flood caused the garbage islands by carrying garbage from one place to another and dump them into the river.

Garbage pollute the river and can cause health problems.

The flood damaged buildings and trees.

The debris from the flood caused the garbage islands too.

Water levels crept lower from a record high in the reservoir behind the massive Three Gorges Dam on Sunday, but authorities warned they did not know whether the drop would continue.

The Three Gorges Dam is on the Yangtze River.

The Three Gorge Dam on China's Yangtze River.

And the amount of garbage in the river could jam the gate of the dam.

The decaying garbage can also pollute the water quality.

The water will became smelly and dirty.

And there will be lots of  bad germs in the river.

The germs can kill the fishes and other animals that live in the river.

Contaminated water is bad for human too.

It can cause Cholera, diarrhoea, food poisoning, some skin diseases and other health problems.

Dangerous chemicals were also swept to the river by the flood.

I knew that flood cause garbage but I did not know that it can caused garbage islands.

This is another disaster for China.

Ways To Heal Our Earth

  • Stop the wars because the wars destroy trees, buildings, animals, humans and caused pollutions and wars can destroy our Earth.

  • Stop doing all the things that can harm our Earth.

  • Plant lots and lots of trees.

  • Use organic farming to reduce pollution.

  • The government should find ways so that everybody can use solar energy for electricity.

  • Invent transports that do not cause pollution maybe we can use solar energy.

  • Plant lots of trees around factories to reduce air pollution.

  • Stop building factories around lakes, rivers or sea and houses.

  • Do not produce too much things to reduce industrial waste.

  • Do not use dangerous chemical in factories.

  • Stop demolishing buildings that are still strong and safe because we cause pollution during demolishing and we need a place to throw the rubble. When we build a new building we’ll need new bricks, glass, steel and wood and cause more damage to the Earth.

  • Clean up the rubbish around us.

  • Clean the polluted rivers and lakes. Take out the rubbish and treat the water.

  • Recycle, reuse and reduce doing things that is bad for our environment.

  • Show the people what will happen if we do not heal our Earth. Even littering can cause a disaster.

  • Stop smoking because it causes air pollution just like factories. If someone want to smoke they should only smoke in a cave deep in the jungle.
