参考词汇：干旱 drought 古老 primitive
At present, everyone is greatly concerned about the southwest drought. Some think we can fight the drought by praying for rain by means of the Internet——using the modern tool to do the primitive thing, which I think is in vain. Faced with the terrible drought, we should take effective measures to settle the issue.
Firstly, we must protect trees. Trees play an important part in water and soil conservation. People are suffering from the drought because plenty of trees have been cut down without limits. If we continue to do so, we will be punished by nature. Secondly, we should try to save water. Water is a necessity in our daily life. Besides, water resources are limited, so we shouldn't waste it. If we don’t kick the bad habit of wasting water, we will surely suffer more in the future.
It's never too late to mend. After the disaster, we should realize protecting nature means protecting ourselves. Only in this way can we live a better life in the future.
