AIR IN YOUR CITY

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+

Are you acquainted with the quality of air in the city you live in? Do you follow the measurements? Do the authorities in your city monitor the quality of the air at all? If not, demand city authorities to establish proper network of monitoring stations and regularly and promptly post the data through internet applications.


Winter months, summer days which are getting ever hotter and longer periods without any proper rain/snow fall and wind - these are conditions which bring out the most significant increase in air pollution.


Ljubljana, my home city, has been named European Green Capital 2016, which is a very flattering title.
But, unfortunately, monitoring in Ljubljana during 1st January - 15th February 2016 showed that the concentration of solid particles in the air, named PM 10, rocketed sky-high in 38 days during that period. Sometimes it exceeded the permitted level by three times!


Morning jogging in Ljubljana has become more dangerous that smoking of two packages of cigarettes!

 

And how is your city doing?
