Hong Kong air pollution – Life threatening one in every 8 Days
A report, citing figures obtained from the government, says Hong Kongâ€™s roadside air pollution reached life-threatening levels one in every eight days last year. The air pollution index was recorded by the Environmental Protection Department. It said there were 44 days of â€śvery high pollutionâ€ť last year. That number is up from the 39 reported days in 2008 and the 13 days in 2005. The impact of vehicular and industrial pollution on the health of citizens in major cities is becoming increasingly documented. Public transport needs to play a bigger role in moving people around their cities to reduce pollution.
