    EPA Reduce Gas Emissions

    The constant war between environmentalists and profiteers is seemingly never-ending. There are over 100 million cars in the United States alone and they all spew out intoxicating fumes that not only threaten our air purity but trap all the heat in our atmosphere causing unlikely climates. Recently however, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) took actions to slash the amount of greenhouse gas emission from cars.
    Vehicles within the proposed rules of the EPA which account for 40% of the nations cars and 20% of the nations carbon-dioxide emissions were given new standards to meet such as a 5% increase in fuel efficiency. This meager 5% undoubtedly can do a lot in the coming future but would the public notice the change themselves? Not as much as we'd like to think. However the increase in fuel efficiency would aid the United States by saving more than one billion barrels of oil in the span of five years. By 2030 the United States would curtail about 20% of the United States' carbon dioxide emanation from passenger cars alone.
    California's leadership to fight back pollution started in 2002, it was the first-in-the-nation law that required automakers. Later in the years, the Supreme Court ruled that the EPA had the power to regulate the amount of carbon dioxide emission however, smaller courts situated in California declared that California automakers had their own right to regulate the amount of carbon dioxide emission.
    The need to slash on the amount of carbon dioxide and other dangerous greenhouse gases that are being spit out everyday is urgent as it effects many things aside from climate shifts. The astonishing amounts of fumes in the air can be the leading cause in respiratory and asthma-related diseases that are so common in California today.
    The reason for change is obvious, these hazardous gases pollute the very air we breath in 24/7, the fumes pollute the sky discoloring it to a sickly orange-yellow and the visibility is clouded as smog covers the clearness of the sky like a thick cloud. The heat that should be escaping Earth stay in, unable to find spots of ozone to travel through due to the polluted sky blocking the heat from traveling. The heat remains, harming the delicately balanced climate system. The fossil fuels are almost all used up, mining for oil leaves behind devastating waste, all in all, if there is at least one small law or bypass to lower the amounts of greenhouse gases being belched into the air, then by all means, the nation as a whole should take it.

    The need to cut on the amount of carbon dioxide and other dangerous greenhouse gases that are being released into the air everyday is urgent. It affects a variety of things including climate shifts such as longer summers and shorter winters. The astonishing amount of fumes in the air can be the leading cause in respiratory and asthma-related diseases that are so common in California today. In downtown Los Angeles, the visibility range is surprisingly low because of the amount of "fog" in the air. In reality, the "fog" is smog, which is the result of constant pollution. The everyday blue sky can turn into a gaseous blanket if most of California continues to neglect the environment's needs. Our water becomes increasingly dirty every year which causes the acidic rain that can damage nature. If pollution along with disregard for the environment continues, the delicate balance of nature can be seriously disrupted.
