Air pollution kills more than HIV and Malaria combined
Here is another article I wrote for Cleantechies. It is on air pollution, a widespread phenomenon that is stricking both developed and developing nations all around the world. As one can see, it is also a most killing one :
” The combustion of fossil fuels are a huge health hazard as to a recent United Nations report, 3.3 million people died from outdoor air pollution in 2010. An additional 3.5 million people die early annually from indoor air pollution. “
” (…) As the World Health Organization notes, going for cleaner energy sources – ie. renewables – could easily halve the amounts of deaths by 2030.” As usual, please enjoy and share !
