Solution 1 – (up to the people)

Solution 2 – (up to the people)
My second solution would be to start managing the amount of power you use. Start using energy saving things instead of others. Managing the thermostat.
Solution 3 - (up to the people)
My third solution would be to start car pulling, walking, and riding bike. Also to use public transportant. To go places.
Based on your research, which is the best solution to turn into action? Explain why you made this choice over the other possible solutions.
I think I would pick solution 1 because everyone could recycle and plant a tree or a plant. I think to start reducing air pollution we should start off with solution 1 and 2 and then after a while go to solution 3. With the three solutions in that order. I think we can reduce air pollution in large scales.
