1 Think about all the things you enjoy doing outside. Do you have a huge, green field or city park close to your house where you can play baseball or soccer? Do your parents take you swimming or camping during your summer vacation? Maybe you and your friends just like to hang out on your street and ride bikes or scooters.
2 Our world is so beautiful. It's part of the reason we love to be outdoors. The blue skies, clear lakes and rivers, rich soil, and fresh air are all valuable natural resources that make up a healthy, safe environment. Everyone living on the earth needs to do his or her part to help protect these resources so our world will still be healthy and beautiful many years from now.
3 As the population on earth continues to grow at a fast rate, it becomes harder to protect our land, air, and water from harmful pollution. The most important way people can fight pollution is to learn as much as possible about how their actions affect the environment. Then they can make wise choices that will reduce damage to the planet.
4 Governments, scientists, businesses and industries, agriculture, environmental organizations, and individuals can all help to control pollution. Pollution management, which specifically involves reducing and cleaning up pollution, is expected to be one of the fastest growing industries of the future.
