Even 92 percent of the world's population breathe polluted air
In Zagreb yesterday morning measured about 100 mg / m³ particulate matter (due to weather conditions and winter level is still higher), according to what is one of the most polluted cities in Europe, writes Jutarnji List. But about 9 o’clock this level fell to 70 micrograms per cubic meter. ‘Think about reducing demanding outdoor activities, if any of the symptoms’, described such a level of air on the page that follows the air quality Institute for Medical Research.
By these calculations came page Air Visual Earth, that using the data of the World Health Organization on air pollution, create 3D visuals showing the current information on air pollution. Even 92 percent of the world’s population breathe polluted air. It is estimated that about 7 million people a year die from the effects of inhalation of polluted air. In Europe, the worst air has Tetovo Macedonia with 81 mg / m³, followed Tuzla in Bosnia and Herzegovina with 65 mg / m³ particulate matter, and in third place in the Skopje with 45 mg / m³. And while we are talking about annual levels, the map shows the current status.
