I should say it is a very good script but I am afraid with very minor errors as follows for our discussion.

1)The sentence"Those seeds become new trees which are important in helping clean the emited field of carbon dioxide." "emited" should be "atomosphere".

2)The sentence"Finally this news an unreleased Michael Jackson’s song is now online more than three months after the singer expected death."expected" should be "unexpected".(死的突然,没有预计到他这样年轻会突然死去)

3)The sentence“They will be release later this month along with a film about Jackson’s plan come back concerts. This sentence is omitted”。Here "release" should be " released".   "come back" should be "comeback". (回乡,名词)

This sentence is omitted”。这句应是“The performances were to have begun in London in July."此句是虚拟语气,他原来打算七月回乡开演唱会(且票已卖出)。但死了肯定是不可能了。

The above is my personal comments.Please let's have yours.

Thank you in advance,
