¿Did you know that over 5 million people annually die because of air pollution?
This design empowers you to create awareness about one of the main problems in large cities: air pollution caused by traffic. Due to the increase of CO2 emissions, global temperature has raised by 1ºC since 1880. In Spain, the 80% of the city pollution is caused by traffic.
Vehicles are the most energy-consuming transport, and thus, the main cause of air pollution in large cities. According to the WHO, air pollution is considered a Group 1 carcinogenic agent.
Air pollution is the cause of serious health issues because of the high levels of ozone and nitrogen dioxide. This may seem just facts and words, but the truth is that every year 5.5 million people prematurely die because of air pollution.
