Some you more sensitive North Americans (the ones who do the most harping on about air pollution killing you) might want to give North Wales a miss. Shocked


Do you have some kind of chip on your shoulder against North Americans? Looks like your topic has more to do with bashing North Americans than the air quality of North Wales. Why would you even tie the two together?


It is always the North Americans - in my experience - whinging about lethal air pollution in various parts of Asia which is about to kill them.

You don't hear the various Brits, Aussies, South Africans and Irish bang on about it as much. Just a finding of mine. Very Happy


Because you know where everyone on this board is from, correct?

He's probably talking about various liberal bedwetters he's met at bars and schools he's worked at over the years.

Nothing breathes so easily as the cowardice of long range rifle hunting.



This is more your speed cosmo.

GENEVA - In new estimates released today, WHO reports that in 2012 around 7 million people died - one in eight of total global deaths – as a result of air pollution exposure. This finding more than doubles previous estimates and confirms that air pollution is now the world’s largest single environmental health risk. Reducing air pollution could save millions of lives.

http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2014/air-pollution/en/

“The risks from air pollution are now far greater than previously thought or understood, particularly for heart disease and strokes,” says Dr Maria Neira, Director of WHO’s Department for Public Health, Environmental and Social Determinants of Health. “Few risks have a greater impact on global health today than air pollution; the evidence signals the need for concerted action to clean up the air we all breathe.”
