Premature deaths will rise minus air quality norms: IEA New Delhi: Less than one per cent of India’s population lives in areas that meet World Health Organisation air quality guidelines. But if stringent air pollution regulations are in place, this could increase to almost 10 per cent by 2040, says a study by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The “Energy and Air Pollution, World Energy Outlook Special Report”, released in June, assesses the role of energy in air pollution and makes emissions projections for 2040 based on two scenarios.

CIUDAD DE MÉXICO (apro).- Cada año, la contaminación del aire es responsable de la muerte de 6.5 millones de personas en el mundo; el fenómeno es la cuarta amenaza más grave a la salud humana, detrás de la presión sanguínea alta, las malas dietas alimentarias y el consumo de tabaco, según un estudio que publicó hoy la Agencia Internacional de la Energía (AIE). En México, donde la mitad de la población vive expuesta a niveles de partículas mayores a 10 microgramos por metro cúbico, la contaminación del aire sería responsable de 12 mil 500 muertos por año. Una cifra muy por debajo del millón de chinos o indios que mueren cada año, envenenados por el aire que respiran.
