Air pollution is one of the largest problems the world is facing today. What are some of the effects of air pollution and what measures can be proposed to solve this problem?
(Please also help me correct the mistakes and misused words if present, thank you very much!)

It is undeniable that air pollution is one of the most pressing environmental issues nowadays. In a near future, air pollution will cause inevitable and serious damages to the environment and human well-beings; however, both the government and individuals can jointly address the issue through a number of ways.

As the air quality descends, several health and environmental issues can be anticipated. The first and foremost concern will undoubtedly be the notorious global warming phenomenon. Elevated level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide and methane, are known to fuel global warming, which will lead to the melting of the polar ice-caps and rising sea levels as well as place the lives of many Arctic animal species at stake. The endangered polar bears have been widely known as a victim of global warming; not only is their natural habitat shrinking in size, but also are they having a harder time to prey on seal, their primary food source. Another concern lies with how contaminated air takes its toll on human’s health. Breathing in poor quality air in the long term will cause several respiratory issues such as asthma, reduced lung function, or even lung cancer. This also applies to animals, which on the other hand are also susceptible to developing birth defects and having a lower reproductive rate as a result of air pollution.

Such consequences, while serious, can be mitigated if both the authority and public tackle its root causes. Since vehicle exhaust fumes are the major source of air pollution in urban areas, people living in the city should consider switching to a more environmentally friendly alternative. By substituting gasoline-fueled vehicles with electric cars or public transportation, emissions from vehicles would be cut down by a considerable amount. Another measure requires the government to enforce stricter punishment for illegal logging. Intact forests, which play a great part in purifying the atmosphere, are being cleared by human at an astonishing rate; therefore, it is utterly necessary to discourage people from doing so, and raising the penalty is one way to address this problem.

In conclusion, air pollution can potentially lead to worsened global warming and several health problems in humans and animals. However, as long as the government and the individuals co-operate to take appropriate action, I believe mitigating these potential concerns is certainly achievable.

Bumped this thread up. Could you please review my essay? Thank you very much!

this is just my opinion

Thanks a lot!

It is undeniable that air pollution is one of the most pressing environmental issues nowadays. In the a near future, air pollution will cause inevitable and serious damage damages to the environment (This is strange to say because air is an integral part of the environment. If the air is polluted, the environment is compromised. Air pollution can damage ancient buildings and stone statues, but it cannot damage the environment.) and human well-beings; (I don't know what a human well-being is.) however, both the government and individuals can jointly address the issue through a number of ways.

As the air quality descends, (wrong word) several health and environmental issues can be anticipated. The first and foremost concern will undoubtedly be the notorious global warming phenomenon. (Strictly speaking, carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. It is a naturally-occuring, very small component of the earth's atmosphere. Plants require carbon dioxide to live. However, IELTS essays do not require scientific accuracy. ) Elevated level (wrong form) of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide and methane, are known to cause fuel global warming, which will lead to the melting of the polar ice-caps and rising sea levels as well as place the lives of many Arctic animal species at stake. The endangered polar bears have been widely known as a victim of global warming; not only is their natural habitat shrinking in size, but also are they having a harder time to hunt prey on seals, their primary food source. Another concern lies with how contaminated air takes its toll on human’s human health. Breathing in poor quality air in the long term will cause several respiratory issues such as asthma, reduced lung function, or even lung cancer. This also applies to animals, which on the other hand are also susceptible to developing birth defects and having a lower reproductive rate as a result of air pollution.
