To the editor:
Ever since I have learned about the recent increase of carbon dioxide in our Earth’s atmosphere I have wanted to do something to try to either stop it or decrease it. I think I have found a way to decrease the addition of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. My theory is the changing of plain old car engines with new hybrid engines that run on mostly electricity. According to Kansas wind power, not only does it stop air pollution by more than 20 percent but it also saves you money on gas.
Another way to stop air pollution is to either car pool or ride the bus because it uses less gas and emits less exhaust. Wind turbines are yet another way to get energy without making any carbon dioxide or any other air pollutants. You may not know how much CO2 you’re releasing each day, but it adds up. Try your best to help bring the amount of CO2 down by taking my advice and help improve the environment.
