Read the following article “Coronavirus May Save More Lives by Preventing Pollution than By Preventing Infection.” Explain to
your local commissioners, mayor or governor, why the pollution from fossil fuels is just as much, if not more, of a concern than the coronavirus. Use supporting details and evidence from the article to support your answer.
Your answer could be presented in written form (short essay or a few paragraphs) or in oral form (video of you speaking). This could be an individual or with a partner or with a group project.
Each person in the group makes a poster. The poster should reflect ideas from the article.
