Air Pollution

Air Pollution

There are lots of problems in our planet. But I think one of the main problem is air pollution, as people have to breathe non stop 24h a day. We need oxygen to survive. However big cities are weltering in smoke. It is very hard for people to take the oxygen from that smog. Moreover there are lots of poisonous substances, which can damage our health. As a result more and more people are getting diseases like lung cancer. Soo we all should concern about what we can do to solve this problem.

Most people think that they don’t cause much damage for the environment. So they don’t think that there is something they should change. But people don’t understand, that they are not the only one who think that way. There are millions or even billions of people who think that they are not causing a lot of damage. Just imagine what would happen if all these people would gaather in one place. It would be a disaster.
Most of us are using cars. If you are using a brand new car, it emits about 190 grammas carbon dioxide in 1 km. 190 grammas is just 1 k.! So if you drive just 5

kilometers per day, what is unbelievable, you car emits almost a kilo of carbon dioxide just in couple of minutes. So think about it. Wouldn’t it be better to use a bicycle or at least a public transport?
Of course scientists are working hard on it. They are creating car, which don’t pollute surroundings. And there is a hope, that soon all of us will be using such cars. As you can buy Toyota Prius which is using electricity and almost does not pollute air. And it costs not so much – about 93 thousand litas. For this price you get a great high class vehicle.
Governments should do something about it too. There are lots of old cars in our country. And it iss really sad to watch them going down the street. These rusty vehicles emit so much poisonous gases. Governments should limit age of cars that can be used. Furthermore there should be some support for families which have no car, so it would be even useful to use public transport or a bicycle.
So I suggest everyone to think how they imagine their future. Would they really like to live in smog? And then you will try to think of wh
hat you can do.
