Frases con el pretérito perfecto de subjuntivo

Can someone let me know if my grammar is correct in the following sentences; which are in the present perfect subjunctive? Thanks!

Es una pena que haya aumentado la contaminación del aire en las ciudades grandes.
Siento que haya ocurrido tantos desastres naturales recientemente.
Temo que el terrorismo haya aumentado drásticamente en todo el mundo en las últimas décadas.
Es una pena que los gobiernos no haya hecho suficiente contra las drogas hasta ahora.
Espero que nosotros hayamos conseguido la paz mundial dentro de veinte años.
Es bueno que haya acabarse la discriminación en muchas áreas del mundo.


Also, if anyone wouldn't mind, please feel free to give me more sentences to correct in the present perfect subjunctive; i.e., proper usage of haber, etc. Need all the practice I can get.

I corrected your thread title to 'Frases con el pretérito perfecto de subjuntivo'.
'Present perfect subjunctive sentences' can't be translated literally (using the same word order as in English). These are all nouns. In English, a noun can modify a noun, but not so in Spanish.

Thanks! I'm hoping the following two are correct now...

Es una pena que los gobiernos no hayan hecho suficiente contra las drogas hasta ahora.
Es bueno que haya acabado la discriminación en muchas áreas del mundo.

Also, what's wrong with using "oraciones"? It's what our professor uses.

'Una frase' and 'una oración' are both correct terms and mean exactly the same thing, but you'll find that 'frases' is used more often than 'oraciones'.
