BBC: Air pollution may harm cognitive intelligence, study says
Quote:
Chronic exposure to air pollution could be linked to cognitive performance, a new study in China suggests.
...>snip<...
Over four years, the maths and verbal skills of some 20,000 people in China were monitored by the US-Chinese study.

Researchers believe the results have global relevance, with more than 80% of the world's urban population breathing unsafe levels of air pollution.

However, while establishing a link between pollution and lower test scores, the study did not prove cause and effect.
...>snip<...
Described as an invisible killer, air pollution causes an estimated seven million premature deaths a year worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
Hmm. That seems bad.

Outsideonline.com: The EPA Is Gutting Regulations That Keep Us Safe
Quote:
Under Pruitt and now Wheeler, the EPA’s working agenda is impressive: On the past 19 months, the agency has gutted regulations on methane emissions, decided not to ban a likely neurotoxic pesticide it had previously planned to outlaw, loosened regulations on air pollution, halted efforts to increase gas mileage in new cars, relaxed rules on how coal plants store toxic coal ash, delayed implementing Obama-era smog-reduction rules, suspended regulations against unpermitted dumping in streams and wetlands, opted not to ban cancer-causing asbestos, and moved to rewrite regulations to reduce haze in national parks. All told, the agency has removed or is in the process of rescinding 76 different regulations. In the EPA’s first full year under Trump, penalties against polluters were down by almost 50 percent, compared to the first years under Clinton, Bush, and Obama.
Well, fuck.

The apocalypse can be rather pretty:



Taken a few days ago at Crescent Beach, BC. The air quality advisory was alarming and my nostrils had enough crustaceans in them to make a seafood salad.
