2. Author (s) : The Jakarta Post Weekender Magazine, July 2007

3. Explain in two or three sentences why you have choosen this article

I’ve choosen this article, because this article tells us about how do we use the resources in
effectively and efficiently for the industries, as we are the current generation. This article
reminds us, that we must have a big responsibility with all resources, which include in
this planet where we live. Then, everyone living must minimalize everything, which can
killing the planet.

4. Explain briefly in four or five sentences what the article is about

It’s about the insanity of the current generation. They use the environmental assets,
without any responsibilities. They don’t think about the effects that they’ve made.
Eliminate a population of animal, decimating fish populations, clearcutting millions of
hectares of rainforest, just for made a profit in their industries. It made an unsustainable
of the environmental assets. The players in that partially renewable resource industry
clearly have a responsibility to minimize the devastation they cause. It’s also tells us
about the nonrenewable resource based industries, has an even more compelling and
specialized obligation.

5. What is the writer’s message or purpose in writing this article?

The writer’s message is the readers, as the current generation, must have a big
responsibility with our resources on this planet Earth. Everyone living has the
responsibility of leaving the planet in a condition that is acceptable to those who will
inherit our environmental assets as well as our planet liabilities. Don’t destroy the
environment or the resources with the dangerous actions, like blasting coral reefs with
dynamite or pouring cyanide into the waters to catch the fish, just for made a profit for
themselves and their industries, because it can decimate fish populations. Those who
make a living by taking a species from the sea must also be stewards, responsible for the
sustainability and well-being of that spesies, same about those who destroyed the
renewable resources.

6. Give your personal comment on the article as a conclusion of your article review

This article reminds us about we, as the current generation must taking the responsibility
with our actions of using the environmental assets for based industries, like the renewable
resources and non renewable resources. Don’t do the action that can destroyed them for
our next generation. If we, as the current generation increase the harmony of them, this
planet will be uncomfortable for those who will inherit them. There are many ways to
make forestry a truly sustainable, if we want to make a new industry. Selective logging,
restricting the cut to the annual growth rate, and above all, reforestation are all
straightforward ways of using land that has already been exploited and avoiding moving
into the last few stands of intouched forest in the world. So, let us save the earth for our
prosperity, and next generations better future.

1. Title of the Article: Wanted: Mars … Dead or Alive?

2. Author (s) : Geoffrey A. Landis

3. Explain in two or three sentences why you have choosen this article

I’ve choosen this article, because this article tells us about the an Earthlike planet, which
is Mars. When I looked the title, I think there’s maybe ever had an existence in that
planet, that’s why the writer’s gave ‘dead or alive’ title. I want to know the answer with
reading this article. This article also give me some interesting and a little bit shocking
informations about Mars.

4. Explain briefly in four or five sentences what the article is about

It’s about planet Mars, an Earthlike planet. Scientists saw the surprising thing about
Mars. When the Mariner 4, a kind of space ship, flew past Mars in 1965, they saw that
Mars was bitterly cold and dry, and there’s no way trace of life, not even microscopic
plants, and have no water. Mars has a very thin atmosphere with ultraviolet light which
kills the bacteria. Another modified view of the planet was captured by the robotic
spacecraft and said that Mars is inhospitable now; scientists think long ago, Mars had
liquid water, like the earth. That’s why, a lot of people still discover more about an
Earthlike Planet, some people think the answered of the question will be surely answer
when human astronauts venture onto its surface.

5. What is the writer’s message or purpose in writing this article?

The writer’s purpose is to inform us, the readers, about an Earthlike planet, Mars.The
writer’s want to tell us about some facts of the planet Mars, or a picture about this
Earthlike planet. Is it possible, or impossible for human to still living there? Is there a life
in that Planet? On Earth, in every habitat where liquid water can be found, there’s some
form of life. So, if Mars once had liquid water, it might once have supported life as well.
The writer want to make us know, how about the atmosphere in Mars, and make us know
about the differences between Earth and Mars planet.

6. Give your personal comment on the article as a conclusion of your article review

This article tells us about could life still exist on Mars,or can we live in there. I think
scientists should make another observation about the planet to get more informations, so
they can make sure the answer of people’s questions. People said that Earth is going to
crush because of the irresponsibility people that won’t take care of their own planet. That
was the reason why scientists search the new home for us, like this Mars planet. Mars is
certainly the most Earthlike of all the planets in the solar system. There are still many
debated between the scientists, some said Mars was alive, but others said was not so
much like Earth at all and they have all proof to prove their own thoughts. I think maybe
the scientists can make a conference, to collect all the evidence and make it ones, so they
will get the answer of the people’s questions.
