Dirty air is a menace to the health condition of every individual. Air is polluted by gas fumes coming out of motor vehicles, heavy smokes coming from industrial homestacks and carbon monoxide from burning plastics, styrofoams and used tires. It is devastating in commercialized and urbanized areas where civilization takes its toll to the urban people.
I live in the urban area. Daily, it is a sickening thought to come out of the house freshly-bathed only to be enveloped by dirty air upon reaching the bus-waiting area. Spiteful to mention, too are the cigarette smokers inside the bus who are inconsiderate of other passengers. The Philippine government does not lack laws to punish these violators. What is needed is strict implementation of environmental laws. But, when? Maybe soon, maybe tomorrow, maybe never. I hate to think of the latter, so i will choose to be optimistic.
