Around 180,000 deaths over 14 years in fast-growing tropical cities were caused by a rapid rise in air pollution. This was found by researchers at UCL and the University at Birmingham.
The international team of scientists aimed to address the data gaps in air quality to show future cities in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. The scientists collected the data through satellites launched by the European Space Agency from 2005 to 2018.
This data on air quality was published in the Science Advances journal. The data focuses on the rapid degradation of air quality. It also talks about the pollutants going into the air which is causing poor air quality worldwide. Some of these gases include Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) and Methane.
Please stop pollution! Pollution could cause bad air quality worldwide and it would harm our health. Please take action and stop pollution to make our beloved earth a better place to live.
