The Global Toll of Fine Particulate Matter. Earth pollution.

By October 31, 2013No Comments

Local atmospheric conditions and human-caused pollution sometimes combine to form obviously terrible breathing conditions that send people to the hospital. Less obvious conditions which include high levels of fine particulate matter can also cause deaths. The study discussed in the following article includes a map based on atmospheric modeling which estimates the deaths per thousand kilometers due to particulate increase relative to 1850 levels. Some areas have even seen a drop in particulate matter in the given time frame.

OK so its not music based but I’m allowed the odd off topic post given this important matter :-)
