Air Pollution

Air pollution is a huge problem in this day and age. So many things can cause air pollution and it is starting to be a major problem. Cars are a great example of something that causes air pollution. A source states that more than half of the air pollution in the United States is caused by mobile sources, primarily automobiles. With this being said, we are a contributor to most of the air pollution that goes on in this country. All of the air pollution from the motor vehicles is going to ruin our environment and something needs to be done to try and make sure that does not happen. The gases that cars release can contribute to global warming, which is already a growing problem in the world today. The air pollution that comes from cars and trucks and buses are an enormous problem and something needs to be done to help our environment before it is too late and there is nothing left that we can do.

  1. Trucks are a huge problem with air pollution but a lot of the newer trucks let out cleaner air, its pretty interesting. This is a good topic.

  2. Like your choice of topic, but is there any other contributers to air pollution besides cars? if so what what are they?

  3. The topic is good, but I have to agree with others that have asked what else contributes to air pollution in the United States? I understand focusing your argument on motor vehicles, as I’m sure it is one of the leading contributors, but I wouldn’t exclude other factors that cause air pollution. Air pollution is a huge topic to cover, so it will be interesting to see where you go with this topic.

  4. I agree, air pollution is definitely one of the biggest pollution problems that we face in today’s world. I thought you were very clear in explaining some of the sources of air pollution. I look forward to seeing how many different places that this pollution can come from, as well as the dangers it brings to humanity and the ecosystem.

  5. I would like to see you take the route of explaining all the problems it causes then maybe ways we can stop it because a lot of people are unaware of the things they do that can cause pollution because our planet is so obviously to everything going on.

  6. I have always been concerned about air pollution and how bad it is actually affecting us. What else, other than cars, contributes to air pollution that we might not even know about?

  7. Air pollution is a major situation that us individuals can begin to prevent ourselves. It takes action. Cars releasing their fumes is one of the major contributor. Well said!
