No Idling - Student View from Burton Valley Elementary School

During the Fall, we noticed that because of the Northern California fires, the air quality was really bad in the East Bay. We also noticed that parents were picking up their children from school in their cars. While they were waiting for their kids to come out from the classrooms, the parents were allowing their cars to idle.

Idling is when you run your car without even moving. We knew that idling emits greenhouse gases, and it is one of the causes of Global Warming. We wanted to do our part to stop it
