What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is a mixture of solid particles and gases in the air. Car emissions, chemicals from factories, dust, pollen and mold spores may be suspended as particles. Ozone, a gas, is a major part of air pollution in cities. When ozone forms air pollution, it's also called smog. Some air pollutants are poisonous.

Problems Air Pollution is causing

Air Pollution has provided us with many problems. Such as Global Warming, which is Earth heating and melting the polar ice caps. Health Problems, which affect whether or not we live or die. It puts us in pain. Acid rain which causes damage from the gases it contains. These affect us, the environment, and the way we live our lives in general.

My Solution

I think the first solution is a better one. You should definitely still do both but I think the first one will be more effective and have a greater impact. Using Public Transportation is a good way to cut down the amount of gases and chemicals we send into the air. If we used the second one we would have to rely on people to cut turn off the lights or turn of the faucet. We can't be sure if they really will. The first solution will be a good solution for the safety of our environment.
