Read the conversation between Air and Charcoal Factory. Air:

Hello, may I speak to Charcoal Factory, please?

Charcoal Factory: Yes, this is Charcoal Factory speaking. Air:

Charcoal Factory, I’m Air. How are you doing? We haven’t spoken for a long time!

CF:

Well hello Air, I’m very busy with work recently.

Air:

Why are you so busy?

CF:

Because I have to burn charcoal day and night!

Air:

You are very hard working! Don't you have to sleep?

CF:

I would love to take a rest, but people use electricity all the time. They rely on electricity very much. Even if they are not watching the television, they would still have it turned on.

Air:

You’re right. Some people turn on their air conditioner even when the weather is quite cool. The exhaust air from these electrical appliances makes me feel sick. Look! How black I am!

CF:

Indeed! People should turn off all their electrical appliances when they do not need them.

Air:

They should also turn on the air conditioner only when the temperature is above 25 degrees. They could use fans too. Using the fan consumes less electricity than using the air conditioner.

CF:

Yes, I agree. If everyone could think about the environment and consume less electricity, the air pollution level would not be so high and I could take some rest. You look nicer without all the dust over you too!

Air:

Sigh, I miss the days without dirt on me. Well, I better not disturb you anymore. Take care and I’ll talk to you next time! Goodbye!

CF:

Alright! Goodbye!
