The Air We Breathe
By: Cori Carlson
Isn't it shocking that about 2.4 million people die each year from causes connected to air pollution? Well, that number can be lowered, but it would first need some of your help. Air pollution is actually a major problem to anyone, anywhere, and there are many solutions that need to be put into action.

Do You Know What Air Pollution Really Is?
Well actually, air pollution is when chemicals, particles, or biological particles that cause disease, death, discomfort, or damage, go into our atmosphere. (Air Pollution- Wikipedia, 2013) Burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas can produce one of the many things that go into our atmosphere that cause air pollution. (Higgins, 2012)
Have you ever wondered how long air pollution has really been around in our atmosphere and effecting us?
Did you really know how serious air pollution is?
Now, air pollution can happen in many places, but really what are the specifics?
There are tons of effects of air pollution on humans, what are they?
What can governments do to help?
- set objectives for ambient air quality in order to avoid, prevent, or reduce harmful effects on human health and environment to improve air quality (Air Pollution- Wikipedia, 2013)
- make standards that set the maximum concentrations for certain pollutants (Air Pollution- Wikipedia, 2013)
- create "Smoke Free Zones" in towns (Higgins, 2012)
Hurry to help!
Now, I hope you are as concerned about our atmosphere as I am. So help our generation, the past generation, our future generation, and all of the living things on our planet and go online to www.ccair.org (Coalition for Clean Air) to donate to help fight air pollution.
