1) Plant trees
2) Mow your lawn less. Older mowers emit 11 times more pollution than modern vehicles.
3) Pump your gas at night.
4) Reduce home and office heating and cooling demands.

Normally we are too busy looking at how pollution will affect the environment that we barely take the time to look at how it affects us.
My question is don’t humans then play a significant part in global warming because of the rapidly increasing population rates and the amount of breaths that each human takes everyday. If more than a billion people are taking roughly 20000 breathes of air then a large amount of carbon dioxide is being released into the air, which is probably only speeding up global warming. Are there any possible solutions we can come with to minimize the impact?

Ms. Brown,

If we average a person 20.000 breaths a day, how many people could infect by high levels of air pollution ? OMG, you give me a real scare!
