The consequences of air pollution are known to everyone, just a few data to extract.
Over 33 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) are emitted annually worldwide, a 45% increase between 1990 and 2010.
The most common consequences for human health are respiratory diseases, lung diseases as well as heart diseases, carcinogenic diseases and other concomitant diseases. On average, each person inhales a out 10,000 liters of air (mostly polluted) during the day.
As a result of the consequences directly related to air pollution taken from the base of the World Health Organization, over 2.4 million people die every year in the world, mostly in China, where it reaches the number of 1.2 million.
In the winter period, the most critical situation is, where sometimes in extremely urban environments, polluting aerosol particles PM 2.5 exceed the allowed
value as much as 20 to 30 times.
Deforestation additionally disrupts biodiversity, but also pollutes the atmosphere, and 9 million hectares of forests are cut down annually.
