  20. The Pollution.

    I am going to speak about the pollution and what we can do to avoid it.

    Air pollution is very dangerous for the environment, but the problem is not for only one country, is for all the world. One of the most contaminated cities is Mexico City and we need to do something for a better living way.

  21. But we are a lot of persons now and the means of transportation are not enough. Some persons want to go to work by bicycle but there are a lot of cars and a lot of accidents and the distances between home and work are too long.

  22. The programs I think may be useful are:
    The government should build a special lane for all the bicycles.
    If your car is more than 10 years old, they need to pay more taxes than the new ones (because the old cars emit more contaminants).
    Put trucks for only one place.

  23. But there are disadvantages that are:
    The road will use more space.
    The persons don´t have a lot of money to be spending it in their cars.
    The trucks could contaminate a lot.

    But is to help our world, DON´T CONTAMINATE!!!!!!!

    I lived in the Marshall Islands for a year. During Halloween, the kids would go trick-or-treating. But instead of saying "trick or treat," they would sing these words to the tune of "London Bridge is Falling Down"
    Happy, happy Halloween
    Happy, happy Halloween
