I am looking for the explanatory verbs for the phrase of to abate the air pollution. Would you like to evaluate this.

1) The scientist should find new means to abate the air pollution.
2)
The scientist should find new means to lessen the air pollution.
3) 1) The scientist should find new means to decrease the air pollution.

What would be the best way to explain this?

Thank you.

I found a similar sentence from a Turkish source like 1. I changed the subject into scientists. Verbs in 2 and 3 was suggested in the same source.

Thank you.

hhtt21, this is another one of those 'verb flavor' questions you like to ask. There is no 'best' choice.

I made a search and thought that they were not very common. So I asked this.

Thank you.
