 Environmental pollution threatens human survival: more than 9 million people die each year.


The report points out that although some traditional pollution problems have been significantly improved by the government, modern pollution problems, such as air and chemical pollution caused by fossil fuels, are rapidly increasing, and the situation is worrying experts.

They analyzed data from WHO and drew conclusions. Every year at least 9 million people are killed by pollution caused by pollution, air pollution is the number one killer, outdoor and indoor air pollution causes 4 million 500 thousand and 2 million 900 thousand deaths respectively, and water pollution causes 1 million 800 thousand people to die of digestive tract diseases and parasites each year. Lead pollution and work environment pollution also killed more than one million people. Many cities around the world have introduced emission reduction and pollution reduction measures. The Danish capital Copenhagen has been promoting bicycle cycling for many years. The number of bicycles in the center of the city exceeds the number of cars and is known as the city of bicycles.

Madrid, the capital of Spain, plans to ban private cars in part of the center of the city, allowing only public transport and single car entry, and the citys government expects to ban diesel vehicles by the city by 2025. In addition, Paris, Brussels and Hamburg are also carrying out drastic policy reforms, including the prohibition of vehicular use and the construction of pedestrians and bicycle road networks. New York mayor of New York recently announced that from June 27th, the Central Park will prohibit vehicles from entering and fulfil their promise to reduce pollution. Landregan pointed out that governments should abandon the old idea that pollution is equal to the drag of the economy. It is often said that social payments cannot afford the cost of pollution, but I dont think we can afford the cost of pollution. According to the researchers statistics, public money losses caused by pollution problems amount to as much as US $4 trillion and 600 billion per year, exceeding 6% of global gross domestic product (GDP). Mccarthy, former director of the US Environmental Protection Agency, pointed out that pollution issues do not have national boundaries. Big countries should not only take their own interests into consideration, ignoring the environmental pollution of small countries. She criticized President Trumps environmental policy retrogression and ignored the fact that environmental protection is closely related to the economy. Although the Landry and team reports were described as the most comprehensive global analysis, they said the data were still insufficient and the researchers were unable to analyze the relationship between the contamination and the impairment of the intelligence and immune system, and the reality is likely to be more serious than the report.
