Modest Proposal

     Today's society revolves around efficiency and convenience. Cars being one of the main sources of this efficiency. However, with such luxury comes a price to pay.  The exhaust and toxic fumes given off by vehicles is extremely harmful for the environment, causing air pollution. Air pollution is the most common form of pollution, also being the most dangerous. Other forms of pollution include water pollution, soil pollution, radioactive pollution, and light pollution. Pollution is an extremely serious and growing problem in our world today. The increase of CO2 in the atmosphere, stemming from the exhausted from vehicles, creates smog which restricts sunlight from reaching the earth. Other such harmful gases can lead to acid rain. With the increase of air pollution especially, cancer rates and respiratory problems skyrocket. Not to mention the additional environmental problems resulting from pollution such as global warming and ozone layer depletion.
     With the health of the human race and the environment at stake, one can only hope that a solution will be advised for this ongoing problem. Take vaccinations into consideration. An individual will get vaccinated in order to build up an immune system to a certain disease or ailment. Now picture Mother Nature as one infected with a disease – the disease that is pollution. In order for this sickness to go away, she must develop an immunity to it. That being said, there is only one solution to pollution (no rhyme intended) – over pollute the earth until Mother Nature reaches her breaking point. If we as a society continue to litter on highways, spill oil in the ocean, drive environment harming vehicles, and send up toxic fumes from factories destroying the ozone, eventually the earth will have to fight against it, therefore making the problem of global warming, greenhouse gases, etc. disappear completely.
     One might be inclined to reject this proposal because they believe that over polluting does not solve the problem, it only makes it worse. In the past the only attempt to solve this ongoing issue was to recycle and conserve energy. However, these efforts have failed countless times considering the thick layer of smog that still lingers over so many cities across the globe. Don't knock it 'till you try it, right?

     Going through with this plan would mean no more fees for recycling bins and cheaper cars considering no one will have to worry about purchasing the more expensive and environment-friendly ones.
     Now, let us go forward from this moment on as one people, one nation, and one cause united against the lies of recycling and environmental conservation to over pollute the earth in order to further improve our state of living!
