"More than 95% of world's population breathe dangerous air, major study finds"

Matt_ADMIN_Matt_ADMIN_ Administrator


More than 95% of the world’s population breathe unsafe air and the burden is falling hardest on the poorest communities, with the gap between the most polluted and least polluted countries rising rapidly, a comprehensive study of global air pollution has found.

Cities are home to an increasing majority of the world’s people, exposing billions to unsafe air, particularly in developing countries, but in rural areas the risk of indoor air pollution is often caused by burning solid fuels. One in three people worldwide faces the double whammy of unsafe air both indoors and out.

The report by the Health Effects Institute used new findings such as satellite data and better monitoring to estimate the numbers of people exposed to air polluted above the levels deemed safe by the World Health Organisation. This exposure has made air pollution the fourth highest cause of death globally, after high blood pressure, diet and smoking, and the greatest environmental health risk.

    Luckily we'll soon have these with loads of fresh air, plenty of room for the kids to run and play and wildlife on our doorstep...

    Oh well, at least they're smart and green.  One question - have they thought about where our electric cars are to be parked :/
