Pollution Control In Las Vegas.
Two approaches have been used to control pollution? Government mandates and
market incentives. Suggest how market incentives might be used to deal with a
pollution problem in Las Vegas. I find this topic to be very interesting, not
only because it concerns all of us living in Las Vegas, but because we are also
part of the problem. Pollution is not a laughing matter, and it has been
strongly fought, without much success, in Southern Nevada in the past several
years. One thing that makes fight pollution harder, is the exponentially growth
of the population. That increases the number of cars out on the street, which
means more traffic, and also higher production of garbage, and that translates
itself into pollution. A lot can be done to decrease the traffic, to clean the

Las Vegas wash, or to purify the air, for an example. The problem is, programs
take a lot of money and a lot of time. For a program to turn out with an
effective result, first you need researchers, and you also need a lot time to
research, and that takes capital. That is the main reason why so many programs
go wrong. Trying to fight the air pollution is hard. One of the ways that the
local government tried to make the air pollution decrease was to build more
roads. That is supposed to work because traffic would move at higher speeds,
resulting in less congestion and eventually less pollution. But in the other
hand, the constructions the highways put in the air high levels of dust, anther
way of pollution. Cheaper ways of reducing pollution are available. But for
those to become effective we need the community’s and the government’s help.

Obviously we do need traffic improvements, but we need to provide greater
incentives to employers to get them to stagger work hours, we need to provide
greater incentives to get employers to allow people to work at home whenever
possible, and we need more trails so people don\'t feel like they have to get
into their car to go anywhere. That would be a cheap and effective way to reduce
pollution. We could also promote more public transportation. Making the CAT bus
more attractive to the population more people would ride it. Cheaper rates or a
higher number of buses on the street would also be another way. That was a
description of how my paper is going to be. All my work will be done solo. My
plan is to make a 7 pages project in which I will describe my thesis,
anti-thesis, synthesis, outlook, perspective, so on and so forth. I will suggest
how market incentives might be used to deal with a pollution problem. And I also
want to present affordable and more convenient ways to reduce pollution in

Southern Nevada. I will research the local library and the Internet for
information.
