Cleaner Future – level 2
The coronavirus had a big impact on many countries in the world. It tested countries´ health care systems and it influenced people´s daily lives. It hurt businesses and economies. Many businesses closed down.
However, some people believe that it is a good opportunity to change. The International Energy Agency is an organization of 30 countries, and it is based in France. The agency said that the coronavirus crisis was a chance to shift from fossil fuels to cleaner energy. It is necessary to make more modern buildings and change transportation and electricity network. The most important thing is to reduce emissions and invest a lot of money in technologies that do not destroy the natural world.
Difficult words: opportunity (a situation that makes something possible to happen), fossil fuel (coal, gas and oil), emission (the gas that mainly cars and factories produce and that hurts the natural world).
