This project focuses on air pollution from cars and trucks in Miami and why it has increased due to continuous use of conventional energy. The causes of this problem are the continuous use of gasoline as fuel, lack of public transportation, and the high cost of electric vehicles. I am proposing three solutions to address this issue. Finally, this presentation suggests several ways to get engaged and contribute to Sustainable Development Goal # 7.
