The line graph below shows the oil production and consumption in China between 1982 and 2006.
Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
You should write at least 150 words.
This graph summarizes the supply and demand for oil in China region, starting from the 80s untill the year 2006. As we can notice, from 1982 to 1990 the supply of crude oil was able to satisfy the demand, in fact the consumption of crude oil was well below the 3 Millions barrels per day. Starting from 1990 the rate of consumption of oil started to grow at very fast pace. The slope of the consumption line between 1990 and 1994 is very steep. A steeper line means that in these 4 yeras the consumption grew faster than the other years, from 2 Millions to over 3 millions of barrels per day. The consumption of oil grew so much that before 1994 the consumption has overcame the prodcution of oil.
The consumption of oil has not stopped to rise, while the production is still striving to satisfy the consumption's trend.

This statement is not completely true. As long as we think that we are not responsible for the future of our planet, we will never make the difference.
The choices and the actions taken by governments and large companies have a huge impact on the planet, but we should consider that they are composed by individuals, like we are.
We should change our way of thinking. We should learn how to be respectful of the planet by reducing the impact that we have on it and we should stop to find the responsible. We are the responsible. If we do not change, governments and companies will not change as well.
This process should start from childhood, taught at school and sustained by parents at home. By educating the children of today, we create the leadership of tomorrow.
There are many things that individuals can do for making the difference in improving the environment.
By separating the waste, we separate waste that can be recycled from waste that cannot be recycled. Recycling is an activity that has become very important in everyday life. By recycling we can give a second life to objects and reducing the demand for new items.
But recycling is only the final step of the life cycle of an object.
The huge quyantity of objects that circulate on our planet depend on the huge demand of everything. Probably is impossible to reduce the demand since there are almost 8 Billion people on the planet, but we can try to make our demand more sustainable.
If each individual start to feel responsible and take action to chage things there is hope to enpower a change in the collectivity.
