Introduction There are many types of pollution like air pollution, water pollution, ground pollution etc. Pollution is bad for Earth because it destroys nature and causes sickness. 3.3 million people die each year due to air pollution. So imagine a total of how many people die each year! Since humanity was invented, the Earth has been getting polluted and each time it gets worse. This article talks about how people are polluting and solutions for pollution. The main idea the body paragraphs are: Future Pollution, Air Pollution Masks, and how pollution is getting worse. The main idea of the section Why People Pollute, is reasons why people pollute. Problems of Pollution, are effects that pollution does that are very bad. Solutions for Pollution is a section that talks about ways that we can help stop pollution. Future Pollution According to scientists, people definitely will wear masks for air pollution . Air pollution masks, are masks that protect you for not breathing polluted air. There are cities like Beijing that already wear masks for air pollution, because of how polluted is the air. 61.1% of the middle school teachers here at Country Day School, say that we won’t need to wear masks for pollution during our lifetime.
This is an image of people wearing Air Pollution masks masks in China. According to The Guardian , a news website, said that “Earth will expire by 2050, because of how pollution is getting worse by the second, because the reliance of fossil fuels, the use of private cars, buildings that use energy inefficiently ( use energy in a foolish way) the burnings on wood and coal, deforestation, how population is growing more and more and how natural resources are getting drained ( exhausted ).” Many people are scared from the future. Scientists believe that by 2040, the population of the
world will be 9 billion people, and by 2050 there will be a population of 11 billion people. Of the 11 billion people by 2050, scientist say that China will have a population of 440 million people or 480 million people. People are building factories, dispatching (Cutting down) trees, using gasoline cars, getting natural resources disabled (wasted), thinking that pollution won’t get worse but it does get worse by the second. More people will die in the future, but there will obviously be a bigger society, so Earth will be jampacked (overfilled) with humans and that’s bad for Earth because that means that those who are born are going to work, and have a car, and factories will work more because of how many people are being born. The big contrast from today and from before is that people won’t be able to do the things they did in the past. Maybe there will be kids that can’t even go outside because they can’t afford an air pollution mask, related to homeless people, they could die or get sick because they don’t have the money to buy a mask. Most of nature will be wipedout and People will need to wear gas masks.

According to The Guardian a total of 1 million things from plants to animals will become extinct from here to 2050. Why People Pollute People pollute because they’re lackadaisical (lazy), egotistical ( selfish ) and bad. For instance, people are lazy and want to get fast to destinations, so they use their clunkers (vehicles). An example for egotistical ness is when they throw trash to the environment and say, “ Oh, it’s just one little piece of trash so this won’t harm the environment!” Actually it does because imagine how many people toss trash in that same place in one day. People are so focused in all their little details, that they throw away the heavyweight champion detail that’s polluting, so they pollute.
Problems of Pollution Pollution adorns (damages) Earth; It is wrecking our air, Earth, people, nature and the atmosphere. According to the middle school teacher here at Country Day School, pollution could end the world some day. Did you know that pollution kills about 3.3 million people a year, and 1400 children a day. By 2050 scientists estimate that pollution will exterminate 6.6 million people a year. Pollution causes environmental degradation, humans not being healthy, Global warming, Ozone Layer Depletion, and Infertile Land. All those things, are destroying our planet and atmosphere. Milman , a news website, says that it is people’s fault that they are destroying the 2 2 world by making more greenhouse gases and putting more CO into the air. CO , is carbon dioxide that is produced by burning fossil fuels. Klinker, another news website, says that not only humans are causing pollution but also plants, like rivers are getting dirty because of certain plants in the water. My opinion, is that people are polluting, and it is killing 1400 children a day; people feel very bad for them, but they keep polluting. Solutions for Pollution Here are some solutions for pollution for helping it stop. You can start making more smart choices of transportation, walk or ride your bike whenever possible. Use more public mode of transportation, buying hybrid and electric cars, you can start recycling more, and stop using too much factories. You need to be very positive and try to stop pollution, people can stop pollution!

Problems of Pollution are effects that pollution do that are very bad. Solution for Pollution is a section that talks about ways that we can help stop pollution. People can stop using gasoline cars and use
electric cars. They should walk or use their bikes whenever possible and that’s actually very good for stopping pollution, but also for making people exercise more. There are so many solutions for this problem so we need to do this things so that we can stop pollution in this world.
