Rob the rubbish - PAU inglés 2015 Andalucía resuelto

>Exámenes selectividad inglés resueltos Andalucía


Rob the rubbishMost mountaineers will probably tell you that they climb mountains because of the challenge. But Rob the Rubbish climbs mountains to collect the rubbish.
Robin Kevan, aged 63, was horrified by the litter in the streets of his hometown, Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales. However, instead of complaining, he started to pick up the rubbish and most days filled a large plastic sack, or bin bag, by breakfast. One day, his wife wrote “Rob the Rubbish” on his jacket, and the name stuck.
In November 2005, Rob heard about the litter on Ben Nevis, the United Kingdom’s highest mountain. In a two-day visit, he filled six bin bags with rubbish. Wearing his yellow jacket and two pairs of gloves (because, he explains, you never know what you may encounter in other people’s rubbish), he has since climbed other mountains in the UK. He finds paper wrappers, plastic bags, soft drinks cans and bottles. These are the worst, because glass takes a million years to degrade.
Rob believes that tackling the problem of rubbish involves the re-education of a whole generation. Until then, he wants to do what he can to help restore the purity of natural beauty spots. In addition, his self-imposed task brings him other advantages: a healthy outdoor hobby, a sense of purpose and a feeling of satisfaction.
As a result of the publicity he had received, in autumn 2006 Rob climbed Mt Everest to collect rubbish from the base camp. Now he wants to visit Mt Kilimanjaro in east Africa. Rob hopes that he is raising awareness of the litter problem with his work. So, the next time you go hiking, make sure you don’t leave your rubbish behind.
