Too often we are afraid to watch the news in fear of upsetting ourselves. For hours, we have sat waiting for a stroke of good news throughout the rainstorm of bad. Well, your search for positive news has led you here and we intend to give you some!
Sit back and get ready for some good news!
We are much more informed than we were years ago, especially the younger generations. I bet your neighbor’s kid in elementary school knows more about pollution than the average adult. If you visit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s website, you will find many clear, interactive graphics and facts on the 2019 AirTrends report. Websites such as these make learning about world issues accessible and almost fun. Facts do not always have to be shrouded in a cloak of a boring Times New Roman, 12-font essay.
The Global Education Monitoring (GEM) report explained that people with more education are more likely to be concerned about the environment. That makes sense, but it does not mean that is the case for everyone. Access to air pollution information is abundant in this age of information. Therefore, education on the subject has increased.
There are strong examples of laws making a difference in air quality. Below are cities that have made monumental changes:
The world needs change and it needs it fast in terms of air pollution. Legislature is a great way to keep people on track, but commitment needs to come from all places, not just government.

We live in a world of innovation. Intuitive minds are getting credit for their magnificent ideas. Here are some inventions intended to battle air pollution:
The US economy has seen economic growth with the enactment of air pollution initiatives, according to the EPA. Environmental research opens jobs for people, as well.
However, you do see a sturdy growth with vehicle miles traveled. Yet, with many people stuck in their houses, it can be assumed that vehicle emissions have been lowering. If remote work becomes the new norm, vehicle emissions might even curve down. Companies such as Apple and Twitter have already made preparations for stay-at-home work for the rest of 2020, according to USA Today. Even if companies alternated the days their employees worked, the decrease in work travel emission would decrease tremendously.
NextCore Media has always been a remote company. Since 2016, we have been running on online meetings, emails, and phone calls. Because of this, our company is completely paperless and our employees do not contribute to work traffic air pollution. Imagine if more companies worked remotely. Traffic hour pollution (and traffic) would not be as severe, that’s for sure! This is one way to spare our air!
We are nowhere close to saving the planet that we know and love, but we have countless individuals striving to get closer. With resources given to the right planet-saving people, who knows what could be accomplished. Making donations can make a tremendous impact. We are not powerless against pollution. It is time we take a stand and fight for our planet!’
