If we don’t kill Pollution, it will kill us.

Millions of animals and people are dying from pollution every year, help stop pollution today.

Dear Future President, 

Have you ever seen such wonderful animals in our oceans? Over 100,000 of those animals die every year from water pollution. Also, about 4.6 million people die every year due to air pollution from factories. Pollution is a huge deal in the environment, it is killing too many animals and people because of air pollution, littering and oil dumping.

Water pollution affects too many animals in the ocean and on land because of littering and dumping oils.“Over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals are killed by pollution every year and each year, 1.2 trillion gallons of untreated sewage, storm water, and industrial waste are dumped into US water.” states. This shows that people are not considerate of what is living in the US waters. Everyone needs to stop littering on the beach because most animals die due to plastic bags, water bottles and soda can holders. You should make a law that there should be no dumping of anything into our waters. If you don’t stop the pollution today, all of our ocean animals will go extinct before we know it.

Many families around the world die every year because of air pollution. Around 4 million families die every year due to air pollution. says, “Research published in 2005 suggests that 310,000 Europeans die from air pollution annually.” Some people live in the conditions where they can't escape the air pollution from factories. Families die every year because they can barely breath because of these factories.

Some may disagree because people work in factories and oil dumping companies. Although millions of people and animals die each year due to pollution, some people believe money is more important. When people work for oil companies and factories, they do not realize the destruction is it doing to the environment. Also, these people believe that the the energy they produce drives the economy of the world, giving people the lifestyle everyone loves. But, those people needs to see the bigger picture which is how many lives they are actually ruining due to the carbon dioxide in the air and oil in the oceans.

Overall, pollution can kill millions of people and animals, as well as the environment. Many presidents before you have said they would help stop pollution, but, it has only gotten worse. Please, future president, help the society today and make a change in the United States. Stop pollution.
