Report gives NC mixed grade for healthy air

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

Air pollution levels a 'medical emergency' in Scots cities

There are more early deaths from fine particle pollution than deaths from sodium excess, alcohol abuse, or being sedentary, study authors noted.

Boston: Over 95 per cent of the world's population breathe unsafe air, with India and China together contributing to over half of the global deaths due to pollution caused by small particulate matter, according to a report. In 2013, the MIT Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment published a study that found air pollution is responsible for 200,000 premature deaths in the US each year. About 133 million people live in unhealthy areas, putting them more at risk of serious health consequences such as lung cancer and cardiovascular damage, according to the study. "Residential biomass burning was responsible for 267,700 deaths or almost 25% of the deaths attributable to PM2.5, making it the most important single anthropogenic source related to mortality in 2015".

American Lung Association representatives credit the Clean Air Act for improvements to handling particle pollution. California has done more than any other state to counteract air pollution, the Lung Association said. The association obtained the data on air quality from the EPA's Air Quality System, formerly called the Aerometric Information Retrieval System database.

The good news for the west is that two cities-Bellingham, Washington, and Casper, Wyoming-were among some of the cleanest cities, with zero high ozone or high particle pollution days, according to the report.

Fleury also made 30 saves for the shutout in the opening game of the series in a 1-0 Golden Knights win last Wednesday. The shutout was the 12th of his National Hockey League career, tying Terry Sawchuk for 10th place in playoff history.

Developing countries may definitely be a cause for concern with pollution-related deaths, but between 2010 and 2016 there was also an increase in USA deaths where decomposition was considered to be the cause.

"When there's a lot of pollution and it's really hot, the heat cooks the pollution so it magnifies the ozone in the atmosphere", explained Dr. Christy Sadreameli, an assistant professor of pediatric pulmonology with Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Of the 10 most-polluted cities, seven cities did worse in this year's report, including Los Angeles and the New York City metro area.

These results hint at the potentially pernicious effects of efforts by the Trump administration to undermine the Clean Air Act, Nolen said.

A total of 10 people allegedly belonging to a group called Abhinav Bharat were accused of plotting and carrying out the blasts. Former NIA Director-General Sharad Kumar, who oversaw the trial in this case, refused to comment.

The report also indicated that the gap between the most and least polluted air was widening, with emerging economies falling behind developed countries that have been making progress in cleaning up the air.

Muskegon County had 3 red days for ozone levels; Allegan County was the only other area that measured air quality that had a red ozone day, at 1.

Additionally, Augusta tied for 43rd most polluted in the nation for year-round particle pollution. Yet Siler said many Utahns fail to take steps to reduce their emissions - such as turning off the vehicle while waiting to pick up their kids. Under President Obama, the EPA requested information from the industry about emissions from these existing sources. The cities on the list were Bellingham, Washington; Burlington-South Burlington, Vermont; Casper, Wyoming; Honolulu, Hawaii; Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Florida; and Wilmington, North Carolina. Salt Lake City experienced more high-ozone days from 2014-2016, than in 2013-2015, the time span covered in the association's 2017 report.
