Air pollution is a huge issue for all of us and one that is not going away any time soon. Given that climate change is real and fossil fuel-related emissions are the primary driver, we must take immediate action to cut greenhouse gasses. Not only is air pollution harmful to our health, taking the lives of 7 million people every year, but it greatly impacts the environment as well. It reduces visibility, harms forests and the wildlife that lives there, and causes acid rain. Fossil fuel use is contributing massively to the imbalance of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere and oceans and is negatively affecting the entire planet.
