Air Pollution

By: Matt Den Adel

Whats happened to our atmosphere

In order to keep unsafe air out of our atmosphere, we need to cut down on our fossil fuels usage, Plant trees and recycle, and use less unsafe products on construction sites.


Air pollution is terrible for the environment and is the number one cause of Asthma. But whose the one to blame for this? Humans. In fact the number one cause of air pollution are the appliances we use on a day to day basis.

Carl Zimmer

"Climate change and evolution, which I mainly write about, are intimately related, since life is a potent source of greenhouse gases (methane from bacteria, etc.) and abrupt climate change has triggered profound changes in the biosphere" says Carl Zimmer a famous author.

Take Action Now!

Just doing little things like taking one trip to do all your err-ins or car pooling with a friend to go to the same place counts! Go ahead and plant a tree, or start a garden, you might think that what your doing won't solve anything, but studies show that it only takes one tree to absorb 26,000 miles worth of CO2 that comes out of a car. Talk about saving your environment.
