Every year billion tons of carbon dioxide is added into the air, which in part results in global warming and climate change, in my opinion, we should reduce CO2. First, we can going to work by bus, there is no doubt that it can cut down the pollution and improve our atmosphere. What's more, it is cheaper, comparing with other ways.
