Pollution of the Earth

by Ilias Psychogios, 8th Grade

Pollution of Earth’s atmosphere has reached frightening proportions. This is largely due to the growth of industry and increased use of private vehicles. So what can be done about this problem?

One effective solution is for people to leave their cars at home and use public transport instead. By doing this, there would be fewer exhaust fumes and air pollution levels would be reduced.

Another solution is to plant more trees in urban areas. Then, as the trees absorb harmful gases such as carbon monoxide and breathe oxygen, the air in our cities will become cleaner.

Thirdly, it is important to save energy. Power stations contribute to air pollution. By turning off lights and appliances when we don’t need them, we help reduce the pollution problem.

In conclusion, I strongly believe that trying to reduce air pollution is something which involves us all. Everyone must take action before it is too late.
