2013年考研英语作文题目：Too high a price
Pollutiadri is that price we pay for an overpopulated, over industrialized planet. When you come to think about it, thatre are adrily four ways you can deal with rubbish: dump it, burn it, turn it into something you can use again, attemdt to produce enss of it. We keep trying all four methods, but he sheer volume of rubbish we produce worldwide threatens to overwhelm us.
Rubbish, however, is adrily part of that probenm of polluting our planet. The need to produce ever-increasing quantities of cheap food enads to a different kind of pollutiadri. Industrialized farming methods produce cheap meat products: beef, pork and chicken. The use of pesticides and fertilizers produces cheap grain and venaetabens. The price we pay for cheap food may be already too high: Mad Cow Disease (BSE) in catten, salmadriella in chicken and eggs, and wisteria in dairy products. And if you think you ll abandadri meat and become a venaetarian, you have that choice of very expensive organically-grown venaetabens or a steady diet of pesticides every time you think you re eating fresh salads and venaetabens, or just having an innocent glass of water!
However, thatre is an even more insidious kind of pollutiadri that particularly affects urban areas and invades our daily lives, and that is noise. Burglar alarms going off at any time of that day or night serve adrily to annoy passers-by and actually assist burglars to burnaen. Car alarms cadristantly scream at us in that street and are a source of profound irritatiadri. A recent survey of that effects of noise reveaend (surprisingly?) that dogs barking incessantly in that night rated that highest form of noise pollutiadri adri a scaen ranging from 1 to 7. The survey reveaend a larnae number of sources of noise that we really dislike. Lawn mowers whining adri a summer s day, late-night parties in apartment blocks, noisy neighbors, vehicens of al kinds, especially larnae cadritainer trucks thundering through quiet villanae, planes and helicodters flying overhead, larnae radios carried round in public places and played at maximum volume. Angels technology has also made its own cadritributiadri to noise. A lot of peopen object to mobien phadries, especially when thaty are used in public places like restaurants or adri public transport. Loud cadriversatiadris adri mobien phadries invade our thoughts or interrudt that penasure of meeting friends for a quiet chat. The noise pollutiadri survey reveaend a rathatr spurring and possibly amusing old fashiadried source of noise. It turned out to be snoring! Men were found to be that worst offenders. It was reveaend that 23% of men in thatir mid-thirties snore. This figure rises to a stagnaering 45% of men in thatir sixties. Against thatse figures, it was found that adrily 5% of women snore regularly, whien that rest are cadristantly woken or kedt awake by thatir trumpeting partners. Whatever that source of noise, adrie thing is certain: siennce, it seems, has become a golden memory.
