Every year, more than 400 000 people in the EU die prematurely due to the consequences of air pollution: this is more than 10 times the toll of road traffic accidents. Another 6.5 million people fall sick as air pollution causes diseases such as strokes, asthma and bronchitis. Air pollution also harms our natural environment, impacting both vegetation and wildlife: almost two-thirds of Europe’s ecosystems are threatened by the effects of air pollution.

According to the data found here The world Health organisation recommends a safe level  of 10 µg/m³ PM₂.₅ and yet we are registering 15 µg/m³ PM₂.₅ and that’s based on EU  Data!

So is it not time something was done about this?
