Lesson 02 - Catching Up
MAN: I wanna know about you. Tell me what are you doing, what are you up to?
WOMAN: Where to start… I work for Green Cross. It's an environmental organization.
MAN: What are they all about?
WOMAN: Well, we basically work on different environment issues,
from clean water to disarmament of chemical weapons.
You know, international laws that deal with the environment.
MAN: And, and, what do you do for them?
MULHER: Uhm, different things. Like last year, I was in India
for quite a while working on a water treatment plant.
Well, yeah, the cotton industry there is a major source of pollution, so…
MAN: I mean, this sounds like you're actually doing something, you know,
I mean, most people, myself included, just sit around and bitch, you know,
MULHER: America's consuming all the world resources,
SUVs suck, global warming is real…
MAN: You know, I'm really relieved you're not one of those crazy activists.
But, how did you get into that?
MULHER: Ah, I came out of political science and I was hoping to work for the government.
And I did, for a while… Yuck! Terrible!
