The report's authors said that air pollution was primarily driven by the use and production of fossil fuels creating "a global problem that requires strong policies at every front."
In countries where air pollution levels are below standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO), people are, on average, losing 2.2 years of their lives.
India has the highest levels of air pollution globally and its residents stand to lose more years than those of any other country, with an average of 5.9 years shaved off their lives, according to the Air Quality Life Index (AQLI), published in an annual report by the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC).
It’s everywhere: in the rain, snow, our food, our waters, even in the human placenta! Mercury is poisoning life on Earth.
ARE YOU AWARE artisanal miners' gold ore processing produces 20% of the world's supply of gold used in our jewellery, iPad’s, iPhone, computers, and other electronics devices?
Artisanal miners' ore processing use mercury, a deadly neurotoxin to extract gold from crushed or milled ore releasing 2,000 tonnes of mercury vapor to our atmosphere annually and is the world's largest anthropogenic source of deadly mercury pollution overtaking coal fired plants mercury emissions in 2017.
Mercury pollution is documented in 2021 by Oxford University earth scientists to stay airborne up to one year then precipitates back to Earth in the form of rain and snow.
But finally there's hope!
