[00:00.10]Lesson 39 Your Money

[00:1.00]When Less Is More

[00:2.00]What can you do with 5 yuan?

[00:3.00]Not a lot,you may think.

[00:4.00]Well,if buying a bag of cadies doesn't appeal to you,

[00:5.00]how about buying a tree instead?

[00:6.00]Yes,a tree along the banks of the Yellow River to be exact.

[00:7.00]Every year,approximately 1.6 billion tons of sand flows into the Yellow River.

[00:8.00]China's second longest river.

[00:9.00]The sand contains materials to keep the ecological balance of the area stable.

[00:10.00]Over time,

[00:11.00]the removal of sand has caused serious erosion of the land along the River.

[00:12.00]In some areas,like Fugu Country in Shaanxi Province,

[00:13.00]this has destroyed almost all the land,

[00:14.00]and has forced many local farmers to move to other areas.

[00:15.00]It is a massive job to control Yellow River erosion.

[00:16.00]Many people believe this kind of work is best done by goverment

[00:17.00]or international organisations.

[00:18.00]You may agree with this point of view.If so.it is time for you to think again.

[00:19.00]In fact,it is you who has the most important role to play

[00:20.00]in stopping Yellow River erosion.

[00:21.00]Did you know that your 5 yuan is a fortune?

[00:22.00]For a start,it can buy you a precious tree,which will make the land fertile.

[00:23.00]On fertile land,local farmers can grow crops to make a living.

[00:24.00]With the money they earn from their crops.farmers buy goods or services.

[00:25.00]This helps to develop local economies.

[00:26.00]Still not convinced that your 5 yuan can have so much effect?

[00:27.00]Well,just take a look at the fact below.

[00:28.00]Since 1997,a treeplanting progamme has changed the Jiuchengong Valley

[00:29.00]in Inner Mongolia into a green paradise.

[00:30.00]Visitors from all over the world now come to admire this Garden of Eden.

[00:31.00]What is more,

[00:32.00]the success of the programme has greatly improved the lives of the local people.

[00:33.00]Just think:all this started with 5 yuan!

[00:34.00]So when you have 5 yuan in your pocket next time.

[00:35.00]think twice about how to use the money.

[00:36.00]Remember you can use it to buy a tree

[00:37.00]and create a green future for our country.Our people and yourself.
