help me

I have to write a speech to my English course, and I write about the increase of amounf of cars, and I want that you correct to me, thank you:

I will talk about the problems caused with the increased of the amount of cars in my city and in the world. Although isn't the bigger problem of global warming but it's a factor that gets worse the global warming, because emit a lot of carbon gas in the atmosphere. Other problem is the consumerism, because all the time the factories create new cars and the people buy more and more and often a person has two or three car, and the fabrication of the car also emit carbon gas, and this also damage the nature because the factory don't give right destination to waste produced in the producing of the car. Besides, the increased of the amount of cars also gets worsen the traffic jam, and the time to go to the work and to others places increase and we wasting more time in the traffic. This problem could be resolved if the people were more generous and give a lift or go by bus, and besides to help the environment, would be saving money.

I will talk about the problems caused by the increased amount of cars in my city and in the world. Although it isn't the biggest problem of global warming, it is a factor that gets worse with global warming, because a lot of emitted carbon gas is in the atmosphere. Another problem is the consumerism, because every time the factories create new cars, people buy more and more, and often a person has two or three cars. The fabrication of the car also emits carbon gas, and this damages the nature because the factory doesn't give the right to waste produced gas in the producing of a car. The increase of the amount of cars also worsens traffic, the time it takes to go to work and to other places. This problem could be resolved if people were more generous by giving lifts, or going by bus. This would not only help the environment, it would be saving money.

There is one sentence in there I'm not so sure I corrected the right way, but it's the best way I could! Good luck in your speech! :D

I've tried to leave it as close as possible to the original, while fixing what is actually incorrect. A few general notes: - English uses far fewer articles ('the') than most romance languages. - It also usually uses gerunds ('running') instead of infinitives ('to run') when making nouns out of verbs (So you would say "I am running to the bus stop" instead of "I am to run to the bust stop")

Feel free to ask any questions you have.

I will talk about the problems caused by the increase in the amount of cars in my city and in the world. Although isn't the biggest part^ of global warming, it's a factor that makes global warming worse, because it emits a lot of carbon dioxide^^ into the atmosphere. The other problem is consumerism, because all the time factories create new cars and people buy more and more and often a person has two or three cars, and the fabrication of the car also emits carbon dioxide, and this also damages nature because factories don't send the waste produced in the producing cars to the right destinations. Besides, the increased number of cars also worsens traffic jams, and the time to go to work and to others places increases and we waste more time in traffic. This problem could be resolved if people were more generous and gave their colleages^^^ a lift or went by bus, and besides helping the environment, they would be saving money.

^ You probably don't need to say it's a problem, but if you want to, you could say something like "it isn't the biggest problem contributing to global warming"

^^ Carbon and carbon dioxide are very different things

^^^ You can change this word, but you must give a lift to someone, you can't just give a lift.
