The Fight Against Air Pollution A few years ago, my hometown has been seriously polluted by harmful smog. No one would go out without a surgical mask covering his mouth and nose. Even though
the number of people falling ill because of the smog still grew rapidly. However, everything has been changed since last year. Worrying about the bad effect of the smog, many people wrote to NPC delegates to search for help. There was not long before the government set about handling this problem. Many factories which could not reach the standard set by government have been shut down. The rest were moved out of the region. What’s more, government also organized citizens and volunteers to plant trees around my hometown. With the cooperation of government and citizens, all those measures worked. To everyone’s delight, the sky turned to clear. There is no denying that everyone in my hometown is happy with the measures which government took to improve the environment.
