The first way to help to reduce air pollution is to ride the public transportation, walk, and/or ride a bike. Bicycling, walking, and riding the public transportation are good way to try to reduce air pollution. You are thinking, doesn’t public transportation also pollute our environment. Surprisingly, no. U.S. public transportation saves 37 million metric
tons of carbon dioxide annually and reduces 80% emission to our environment. If an individual switches from driving a 20-mile round trip commute to using public transportation, his or her
annual CO2 emissions will decrease by 4,800 pounds per year, equal to a 10 percent reduction in a two-car household’s carbon footprint. Even carpooling and vanpools can help to reduce out air pollution.
The next way to help to reduce air pollution is our energy resources we use to power our cars and how we generate our electricity. Our electricity comes from fossil fuels. When one fossil fuel is gone, it takes 10 million years to reproduce another one. Burning of our fossil fuels helps to pollute the air. A good way to keep our environment green is that we use water fossil fuels, solar panels (as long as it backs up our electricity when sun isn’t shining), and windmills to power our electricity (we can certainly find a ways to back up those windmills when no wind blows). A lot of our stoves and ovens used to cook and bake food needs to be converted into natural gas fuel that can easily get rid of our air environment. That way, we have less pollution at home and we can make our environment a better world. Also, make more ceiling windows, so we can absorb in natural light to make our house a better place and we don’t waste our electricity too much. For powering our cars, we can just convert/repower their gas with Compressed natural gas, hybrid, electricity, and also regular steam from boiling water (and sometimes diesel) . Converting our cars to these kinds of gases, we can also save our environment and we wouldn’t be able to have such a bad smell of the gas leaking out of the cars and less fires can happen in this way. I am also complementing that in the future, I also hope we have electromagnet powered cars so sometimes we have have automated driving, as in when we are on electromagnet highways, drivers can just sit back and relax until we reach a regular highway.
The third and final way to reduce air pollution is smoking. Smoking can help us depleting the pollution we have and we wouldn’t have such a bad smell of it. If you sometimes have friends over at your house that smoke, go outside to do it to minimize health of children. Increases in the number of asthma attacks and severity of symptoms in 200,000 to 1 million children with asthma; between 150,000 and 300,000 lower respiratory tract infections (for children under 18 months of age); and, respiratory tract infections resulting in 7,500 to 15,000 hospitalizations each year. The smell of smoke and what it is made of causes the air to be polluted and is bad for our health and makes other people feel uncomfortable about smoking. Instead of using tobacco smoking, we need more e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes would be healthier for our health and reduce pollution and cancer and would put fewer patients into the hospital.
Of all these topic paragraphs, hopefully, people winder consider about their environmental problems that’s going on right now. There is a need to speak out for more public transportation, gas/energy fuel replacement, and also less tobacco production/plantation and replace these with e-cigarettes that is less causing for our environment. With these natural resources, we can then make our world a greener environment.
