Air Pollution

This week’s focus was on air pollution, which turns out to be a huge health risk! Check out the World Health Organization website or Environment Canada for information about air quality general info on air pollution. We also busted some myths about ozone. Ozone is dangerous whether it is inside or outside so do your research if you are thinking about buying an air purifier (some of them pump out dangerous levels of ozone).

In news on air pollution we discussed the Chinese documentary on air pollution that went viral http://www.latimes.com/world/asia/la-fg-china-environment-movie-20150302-story.html#page=1 The rising issue in Deli of air pollution http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/15/world/asia/delhi-wakes-up-to-an-air-pollution-problem-it-cannot-ignore.html? and how increased air pollution problems result in premature death in Chinese cities. http://energydesk.greenpeace.org/2015/02/04/air-pollution-increases-risk-premature-death-chinese-cities/
