“[…] Every time I breathe…”. These lyrics are very popular, but have you asked yourself what do you really breathe in each day? I can tell you: NOX from domestic aviation, emissions from domestic industry etc… Not really nice for the lunges, but now the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register has published an interactive Europe map of the values of pollutant releases by sector (domestic aviation, road transport, industrial releases). The map is pretty interesting but also alarming 🙁
You can also check the air quality in your neighborhood and you will understand why it’s important to preserve your planet; so go out and plant some trees! http://prtr.ec.europa.eu/DiffuseSourcesAir.aspx
