The air that we breathe – Part 1


In this episode, we talk about air quality – the health aspect, emission standards and the technology.

This will be part one of two because it’s a really big topic to discuss in one go. So, in the next episode, we will talk about the different pollutants.

Despite the progress in emission standards, air pollution is still an issue, especially in urban areas. The world gets hotter and more populated, and multiple sources of pollution contribute to the quality of the air we breathe. Is there anything that could be done to prevent this air pollution that kills 7 million people every year globally?

Here’s what you’re going to learn in this article:

  1. Why air pollution damaging our health
  2. The emission standards that we currently rely on
  3. The technologies, which exist to limit bad pollutants

Hopefully, by the end of this episode, you will be able to understand that the problem affects so many of us and it’s not just a matter of improving technologies or setting emission standards.

Here’s the full article that I mention in the episode:
