Reducing Skin Cancer and Pollution

Mrs. Stone’s Environmental Science class is doing a project on helping the environment in some kind of way and the Green Smokers group is trying to reduce skin cancer and pollution in Baton Rouge Louisiana. They are working on talking to the mayor of Baton Rouge and getting some laws on how much pollution that we put into the air from vehicles and big plants from in Baton Rouge and talking to the surrounding cities. One way to reduce skin cancer is from reducing UV Radiation and we can reduce the UV Radiation from not letting as much greenhouse gases in the air from plants and vehicles then that will help reduce skin cancer and pollution.
