Too many cars have created a lot of serious problems in our world. Besides congestion, accidents and fast fuel consumption,cars are responsible for a good part of air pollution in big cities. All the time, they are pumping huge amounts of waste gases into the atmosphere. These gases are very harmful, causing disease and even death. Last winter, car fumes formed heavy smog over Beijing, making the sky gloomy for weeks and deteriorating people's health.
One possible solution is to design and develop clean cars and clean fuels. In Tsinghua University, campus buses are driven by electricity. In Beijing some of the public buses begin to run on natural gas, which does not give off as much carbon dioxide as the petrol. But it may take decades for the new models of clean cars to completely replace the traditional ones.
Another solution is to develop modern public transportation systems and restrict the use of private cars. If the price of petrol rises constantly and the public vehicles are efficient and convenient enough, most people will not private cars. And the total number of cars in big cities will reduce greatly. On the whole, the elimination of air pollution needs the co-efforts from the government, the public and the environments. This problem will be solved only with the help of science and technology.

Not selling anything, only expressing an opinion. Her other post looks legitimate. I think we are probably OK.

Evil cars....Evil trucks....Evil internal combusion engnines of every sort.

I'm sure they cause some pollution but they've been getting cleaner since the 70's at least.

Let's pick on something else for a change. How about restaurants?

There's a Burger King on my way home from work at the intersection of two busy roads. It's rare to see a vehicle smoking at the light, although it does happen occasionally, yet every day there's a 2 foot wide bolt of smoke billowing out of top of BK. I bet it would take a month for the cars at the light to make as much pollution as that restaurant does in one day.

Only till my natural death could I tell which of what I have been doing is right or wrong, so now I have to try to do well in everything, and then wait to die a natural death. From that you would get angry with your friends, we can conclude you sitll care about the friendship between you.
