Global warming is a serious problem and we don’t need to wait for finding a solution to this problem, but it’s our duty next to the government by acquiring more liable life style: starting from day to day things. Before it is too late it is the responsibility of the public to protect the earth from this serious problem. If we are saving energy, it means that the demand for the fossil fuel is reduced, which lowers the emission of carbon dioxide (the major contributor to global warming). In order to reduce global warming and protect our environment, we must use public transportation like bus (a full bus can take 40 cars off the road), train, bike instead of drive a car because public transportation plays an important role in finding smart ways to the problems we are facing in our everyday life. It also reduces the other harmful pollutants like carbon monoxide and air pollutants that cause smog. To get rid of this air pollution is to plant trees outside and add household plants that can naturally remove the toxins from the air and lower the health risks from air pollution.
Riding Public Transportation is Significant in Many Ways:
- Economically, it is cost effective and helping to reduce the nation’s dependence on petroleum.
- It also lowers our stress level while driving.
- It also helps in protecting the environment by conserving natural resources, reduces air pollution and other harmful gases.
- Increasing economic growth and status by producing “green jobs”.
Public Transportation Helps in Reducing Air Pollution:
Public transport moves people more conveniently as well as efficiently while creating significantly less air pollution to move the passenger as compared to a car or an auto. Buses release only 20% carbon monoxide, 10% hydrocarbons and 75% nitrogen oxides whereas; Trains emit only 25% nitrogen oxides per passenger mile as compared to a single-occupant auto. Clearly, moving from public transport throughout the year makes a great difference in the air quality and use of natural resources. During summer, when harmful ozone levels are at the peak, using public transport makes an even larger difference, especially for those people with respiratory problems. If the people taking keen interest in the journey (short or long) through public transit, biking, car pooling, cycling and walking, then hopefully we are starting a new trend and leading our country in a new direction. So, Ride Transit because it is the smart and healthy way to Go!
