By Bella G., Trigg M., Peter Q., Brianna T., and Abdul S.

The Issue

Pollution is one of the many problems we struggle within the world today. Whether it be from a shortage of green technology or just pure laziness, the effects are clear. In 2015, the United States consumed a total of 7.08 billion barrels of Petroleum products. This effects how people live. In China asthma rates have gone up as much as 40 percent in 5 years, hospitalizing children and spreading to families. Our goal to ending pollution is using more green technology. Denmark has been reducing pollution and by doing so this type of technology and energy has made there economy grow by 78 percent since 1980. By using green energy it has created 6,000- 8,000 more jobs in their country each year. That sounds good doesn't it? Wouldn't you want want a counrty more like that? Well, somethings you could do is drive less, recycle more, and maybe even invest ine some solar panels. Pollution is one of the many problems we struggle with today. Green energy; the solution is less pollution.
