Poor Air

Poor Air

Many parts of Australia, especially city centres and mining areas experience air pollution levels much higher than what is considered “safe”. The Air Pollution Study reports air pollution in NSW causes 603 premature deaths and costs $4.8bn a year > HERE

Check the map showing estimates of small particles in the air (diameter 2.5 micrometres or PM2.5) in 2018, the most recent non-pandemic year without an extreme bushfire season > HERE

Pollution is largely from burning fuel: industry, power stations, domestic wood heaters and vehicles. Moving to electric vehicles will prevent local air pollution, along with renewable energy replacing fossil fuels. I’ve supported the alliance of organisations working to get a nationally coordinated action plan and prepare health services to meet community need > HERE

Let's work together to celebrate and protect our great city!
