Requirement 1: Research It!
Air pollution can cause us to develop health problems such as asthma, bronchitis and lung disease. And it’s bad for the earth in general. All plants and animals benefit from having cleaner air.
Air pollution is caused by many things including things that make our life better. Cars, factories and heating our houses create air pollution. Fortunately, we have trees. Plants make the oxygen we need to breath and clean bad gases out of the air.
