Dear Ma’am or Sir,
I would like to remind you of the large amounts of the death that's only affect regular adults who
are healthy in daily bases. The main reason for this is air pollution. Instead of spending all of our money
on medicine, why don't we try to prevent or decrease the air polluting related diseases by just switching
machines that work with toxic fuel that produces smoke that flows through the air to water or electricity?
Dumping ships' fuel in harbors pollutes the drinking water; I know that filtering is the first thing
comes to mind, but it doesn't take all polluting chemicals away. This serious issue doesn't only concern
humans, but all creatures. In the other hand we have global warming. Air pollution makes the ozone hole
bigger, which leads to ultra violet ray come from the sun. The whole world has 50% of carbon monoxide
in the air we daily breathe that only results from transportation. Here in the United States, the northeast
has more oil-burning regions than anywhere else. 80% of Los Angeles teens died from lung damages for
no medical reasons, which makes almost 100% of Los Angeles teens' population. About 10,800 of unborn
children are dead for the reason of air pollution existence.
Children are the most victims of air pollution and global warming. Spending the afternoon
playing outside, and the afternoon period is the time when the ozone whole lets ultra violet ray pass into
earth, it is an easy causes of skin cancer. The children respiratory tracts are narrower than adults' and that
makes them struggle of chest pain and wheezing more than adults. The saying of "What goes up must
come down" makes from evaporating the chemicals where industries are located rain chemicals a fact.
For instance St. Louis, it rains acid.
Please consider rethinking the way you spend your time and money.
Yours Sincerely,
The Mayor of Raleigh

Dear Mrs. Mcfarlane,
I would like to draw your attention to the dismal state of environment in. Increased vehicular
traffic and chimney smoke has made air polluted. Citizens find difficult to breathe. Dumping of hazardous
chemicals in river has polluted the drinking and ground water. Encroachments on both the sides of the
road have made walking on placements dangerous.
All of us, as concerned citizens, have discussed these problems in various meetings.
We have come up with the following proposals. These I will endeavor to introduce to you along
with problem:
The green road is no longer green. All the trees and shrubs have been cut. There is a heavy pall of
smoke over it.
We propose restricted vehicular movement.
Use of anti-pollution device is made compulsory on all vehicles.
Planting and nurturing of plants and shrubs.
The River has become a dumping ground of hazards chemicals from the factories. These have
killed nearly all the life in the river. It has also polluted our drinking water and ground water.
We propose that Bada Nadi River be declared a protected water body. All the dumping is banned
and very heavy fine be imposed on the offenders. To tackle the problem of managing hazardous waste,
we propose setting up of a water treatment plant so that only clean water is discharged into the river.
Cleaning up of the river and introduction of various fishes and plants in the river will bring it back to life.
Encroachment on the pavements and roads has reduced the area for pedestrians. Hence, they spill
over on roads causing accidents.
We propose removal of encroachments and clearing up of roads. For this, the help of the local
shopkeepers should be taken.
I would request you to seriously consider our proposals and act accordingly.
Thanking you,
Yours Sincerely,

Dear Ma’am or Sir,
Air Pollution is a major problem facing our planet today. It is harmful to every living creature on
the planet. Just imagine one day having to walk outside wearing a mask; or not being able to open the
windows of your house on a hot summer's day. Or even worse, imagine looking out of your window and
not seeing any form of life. All vegetation has died due to acid rain and other chemicals such as sulphur
poisoning. Some of these ideas can become a reality if something is not done about this problem, which,
in my opinion, is far greater than the wars that are going on the world at this moment.
There are two main air pollutants; one is natural causes e.g. windblown dust, pollen, fog etc. and
the other is that which we call people pollution. This is the most serious form of air pollution. One of the
worst air pollutants which is affecting our environment today is Carbon Monoxide, a colorless, odorless
gas caused by the incomplete burning of gasoline, oil, and wood. Low concentrations can cause dizziness,
fatigue and headaches, while high concentrations can be fatal. Other pollutants such as Carbon Dioxide,
Nitrogen and Lead have contributed to the deteriorating environment. We are all guilty of the overuse of
same and, consequently, we all contribute to the pollution levels from which we suffer.
When people say "I'm going out for a breath of fresh air" this is no longer possible in most cities.
The air they inhale is a lungful of chemicals and toxins which are harmful to the human body and which
may cause people to be more susceptible to respiratory problems, lung infections, cancer and even death
in the long term. Air pollution is also the cause of global warming which is rapidly changing the world's
climate due to a thinning in the ozone layer which protects the earth from dangerous ultra violet rays. But
what can we do about this increasing problem? Well, first and foremost, we have to step up to the plate
and agree that this is a major issue in the world and that something needs to be done about! Not
in twenty or thirty years time when it will be too late to change. Secondly, we have to let the entire
population of the earth know about the effects of air pollution on the planet, and what they can do to help
both themselves and their planet.
Yours Sincerely,
