Did you know?

  1. Air pollution causes crime and unethical behaviour (lse.ac.uk)
  2. Air pollution by disc brakes causes 20% of the total emissions by a standard car and the pollution (ultra-fine dust) is more toxic for humans than exhaust fumes.
  3. Ultra-fine pollution (PM 0.1) isn't yet officially measured in many cities (including London) while the particles have a greater impact on health.

Air pollution causes crime and unethical behaviour

Recent studies have discovered a link between air pollution and crime.

The evidence suggests that air pollution has the capacity to increase bad behaviour. But further research indicates that it can have even more serious impacts. One study of air pollution and crime in 9,360 US cities suggests that air pollution increases crime.

Recent research from the UK provides more evidence. By comparing data for 1.8 million crimes over two years with pollution data from London’s boroughs and wards. The analysis considered factors such as temperature, humidity and rainfall, days of the week and different seasons. The researchers found that a 10 point raise in the AQI increases the crime rate by 0.9 per cent. Levels of crime in London are therefore higher on the most polluted days. The study found that air pollution influenced crime in London’s wealthiest and poorest neighbourhoods. (lse.ac.uk)

Update 2019: Study Links Air-Pollution to Violent Crime (FBI crime data)

"If you reduce pollution, you might see a reduction in crime as well,” (Colorado State University)
Ultra-fine particles PM0.1, PM2.5 and PM10

Ultra-fine pollution not yet measured

Ultra-fine pollution PM0.1 is not yet widely regulated, studied or measured.

In big cities such as London, PM0.1 isn't yet officially measured (2019).

The effects on health are largely Unknown.

Impact on health

According to a recent study, PM0.1 ultra-fine dust is emerging as the most abundant pollution in cities.

Ultrafine particles (UFPs or PM0.1) are the fraction of ambient particulates with an aerodynamic diameter smaller than 0.1 microm. PM0.1 is emerging as the most abundant particulate pollutants in urban areas. Ultrafine particles have been less studied than PM2.5 and PM10 particulates.

UFPs represent an area of toxicology of emerging concern. (PubMed.gov)

PM0.1 (<0.1µm) particles have a greater impact on health than PM2.5 (<2.5µm) and PM10 (<10µm) particles, because:

  1. PM0.1 particles can easily get into the respiratory system and enter the blood stream.
  2. PM0.1 particles contain toxic elements such as heavy metals and hydrocarbons that can't be removed by the body.

Yerdagi tabiatning qulashi

200 ta eng yaxshi olimlardan iborat guruh Yerning ommaviy yoʻq boʻlib ketish arafasida turganini taʼkidlamoqda, bu esa yaqin oʻn yilliklarda millionlab hayvonlar turlarini yoʻq qilishga olib kelishi mumkin, bu esa Yerdagi tabiatning qulashiga olib kelishi mumkin.

(2020) Olimlar: Bir nechta ekologik inqirozlar "tizimli inqirozga" olib kelishi mumkin
“200 dan ortiq yetakchi olimlarning ogohlantirishicha, bir-biriga o'xshash ekologik inqirozlar sayyorani "global tizimli tanazzulga" olib kelishi mumkin.”

“Biz tabiatga qarshi o'z joniga qasd qilish urushimizni yutmoqdamiz. Ekotizimning qulashi kutilmoqda. O'nlab yillar ichida millionlab hayvonlar turlari yo'q bo'lib ketishi mumkin, bu esa Yerdagi tabiatning qulashiga olib keladi.”

Sanoat kompaniyalari okeandan zaharli chiqindilarni tashlab ketish joyi sifatida foydalangan. Okeanda 150 yildan beri xavfli sanoat kimyoviy moddalari to‘planib kelmoqda.

Quruqlikdagi qit'alardan kattaroq bo'lgan ba'zi hududlarda suvda planktonga nisbatan 6 baravar ko'p plastik bor. Okeandagi bu zonalarning ba'zilari baliq yashay olmaydigan "o'lim zonasi" deb ataladi.

Braziliyada sanoatni rivojlantirish maqsadida kelgusi yillarda o'rmonning beshdan bir qismi yoqib yuborilishi kerak. Amazon tropik o'rmonlari bir necha o'n yillar ichida yo'q bo'lib ketishi kutilmoqda.

So'nggi o'n yilliklarda barcha dengiz qushlarining 67 foizi nobud bo'lgan. Dengiz qushlarining ko'p turlari o'n yillar ichida yo'q bo'lib ketishi mumkin.

O'tgan o'n yilliklarda barcha hasharotlarning 75 foizi nobud bo'lgan. O'nlab yillar ichida tabiatning qulashi muqarrar bo'ladigan burilish nuqtasiga erishish mumkin.

“O'tgan 50 yil ichida hasharotlar 75% ga kamaydi - va oqibatlari tez orada halokatli bo'lishi mumkin.”

Buning ustiga, tabiatdagi yevgenika (GMO) korruptsiyaga majburlanadi.

Kabellarda AQSh diplomatlari bevosita Monsanto va Bayer kabi GM kompaniyalarida ishlayotgani ko‘rsatilgan.
GMO muxoliflari " qasos va og'riq " bilan jazolandi.

Zaharli chiqindilarni okeanlarga tashlash 

Har yili okeanlarga 180 million tonna zaharli, kimyoviy va radioaktiv chiqindilar tashlanadi. Bu chuqur ko'k damping deb ataladi.

Sanoat kompaniyalari okeanga "ko'zdan uzoqda, aqldan tashqarida" degan g'oya bilan tubsiz chuqur sifatida qarashadi.
