Pollution More than 95 per cent of the global population breathes air which is above the recommended level for air pollution

"Los Angeles also recorded more unhealthy air days in this report, measured in the weighted average, a change from a year ago when it reached its lowest level ever". "We saw a lot of evidence in 2016 of the impact that climate change and global warming is going to have on us".

The American Lung Association gave San Diego a failing grade Wednesday it its latest ranking of pollution levels across the country.

Sadly, contaminated air can also be produced in homes. The area ranked No. 1 for high ozone days out of 227 metropolitan regions and No. 7 for 24-hour particle pollution out of 201 metropolitan regions. Lung association officials said 2016 was one of the hottest years on record and blamed climate change for the excess heat, which helped drive rising levels of ozone.

"Air pollution takes a huge personal toll worldwide, making it hard to breathe for those with respiratory disease, sending the young and old to hospital, missing school and work, and contributing to early death", Bob O'Keefe, vice president of HEI, said in a statement.

Bad news for California, as eight of the top 10 worst polluted cities are in the golden state.

"The NCAP needs to have clear interim milestones for all the activities it is proposing such as city-wise action plans", it said.

"The 2018 "State of the Air" report finds that unhealthful levels of ozone and particle pollution in Knoxville put our citizens at risk for premature death and other serious health effects such as asthma attacks and greater difficulty breathing for those living with a lung disease like COPD. The major sources of outdoor air pollution in Bangladesh are brick kilns and development works, especially construction works", Ziaul Haque, director of Air Quality at Department of Environment, told The Daily Star yesterday.

According to the report, Knoxville has seen a slight increase in some air pollutant compared to the last report that was conducted in 2014.
