  下面是2014年英语专四完形填空题(8),预祝考生在专四考试中取得好成绩!
  There's no question that the Earth is getting hotter. The real questions are: How much of the warming is our fault, and are we 1__________ to slow the devastation by controlling our insatiable 2__________ for fossil fuels?
  Global warming can seem too 3__________ to worry about, or too uncertain-something projected by the same computer 4__________ that often can't get next week's weather right. On a raw winter day you might think that a few degrees of warming wouldn't be such a bad thing anyway. And no doubt about it: Warnings about 5__________ change can sound like an environmentalist scare tactic, meant to force us out of our cars and restrict our lifestyles.
  Comforting thoughts, perhaps. Unfortunately, however, the Earth has some discomforting news. From Alaska to the snowy peaks of the Andes the world is heating up right now, and fast. Globally, the 6__________ is up 1°F over the past century, but some of the coldest, most remote spots have warmed much more. The results aren't pretty. Ice is 7__________ , rivers are running dry, and coasts are 8__________ , threatening communities.
  The 9__________ are happening largely out of sight. But they shouldn't be out of mind, because they are omens of what's in store for the 10__________ of the planet.
  [A]remote
  [B]techniques
  [C]consisting
  [D]rest
  [E]willing
  [F]climate
  [G]skill
  [H]appetite
  [I]melting
  [J]vanishing
  [K]eroding
  [L]temperature
  [M]curiosity
  [N]changes
  [O]skillful
  全文翻译:
  毫无疑问,地球正变得越来越热。但是,真正的问题是:气候变暖的程度是我们的错,我们愿意通过控制我们对矿石燃料无止境的欲望来减缓地球变暖吗?
  全球气候变暖似乎离我们太遥远,以至于我们无需为此担心;或者太难以确定,我们无法用计算机技术来测定,同样的计算机技术往往难以正确地预报下周的天气情况。在一个阴冷的冬日,你可能会觉得,变暖几度无论如何也不是件糟糕的事情。毫无疑问,气候变化的警告听上去就像一个环保主义者的恐吓策略,迫使我们远离汽车,限制我们的生活方式。
  这些也许是安慰的想法。然而,不幸的是,地球给我们带来一些不安的消息。从阿拉斯加到安第斯山的雪峰,全球都在快速升温。上个世纪,全球温度上升了1华氏度,但是有些最冷、最偏远的地方却远不止如此。这些结果非常不妙。冰层正在融化,河流正在干枯,海岸正在受侵蚀,我们的社区正在受到威胁。
  很大程度上,这些正在发生的变化处于我们的视野之外。但是,他们不应该被忽视,因为他们预示着地球的其他地方将会发生什么样的情况。
