This Bicycle Will Clean Polluted Air While You Pedal

For Architectural Digest, by Nick Mafi. As urban environments grow, particularly in emerging markets such as China, Brazil, and India, city smog is increasingly becoming a public health concern. Indeed, according to the World Health Organization, around 3 million deaths a year worldwide are attributable to air pollution. That’s one of many reasons why the Dutch artist and innovator Dan Roosegaarde has taken it upon himself to design a series of products to help curb the growing problems stemming from pollution. Last fall, Roosegaarde unveiled a series of 23-foot-high towers that, in essence, operate as a massive air purifier. But Roosegaarde wasn’t content only designing pollution-curbing buildings. He felt there was more he could do. And he was right. The implications could be enormous, particularly in urban environments where bike lanes are interwoven within the grid. The Dutch innovator recently unveiled a concept bicycle that, true to form, cleans polluted air while the rider pedals […]

300 million children are breathing toxic air right now.

That’s according to a new report by UNICEF, which found that nearly one in seven children in the world live in areas where outdoor air pollution is at least six times higher than international guidelines set by the World Health Organization.

The report also found that air pollution — primarily caused by fossil fuel burning, vehicle emissions, waste incineration, and dust — contributes to the deaths of about 600,000 kids under the age of 5 each year. The statistics are most dire in South Asia, where an estimated 620 million children live with dirty air.

Air pollution is especially harmful to children as their lungs are still developing and their respiratory tracks are more permeable than adults’. But as UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake points out, “Pollutants don’t only harm children’s developing lungs, they can actually cross the blood-brain barrier and permanently damage their developing brains — and, thus, their futures.”

UNICEF is calling for countries to take several steps to minimize risk to kids, including reducing pollution, increasing access to health care, monitoring air pollution levels, and keeping polluting facilities away from schools and playgrounds.

“We protect our children when we protect the quality of our air,” Lake says. “Both are central to our future.”

U.S., European Regulators, the Pope Agree: Time to Re-assess Pesticide Risks

We know a lot about glyphosate, the pesticide widely known as Roundup. We know it kills the only food of the monarch caterpillar, linking it to nearly a 90 percent decline in monarch butterflies over the past two decades. We know that a report released by the World Health Organization in March links it to cancer. We know the Netherlands has banned over-the-counter sales of it. We know this month, France did the same. And this week, in response to a lawsuit filed by the conservation group where I work, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency agreed for the first time to analyze how 1,500 endangered plants and animals are impacted by Roundup and atrazine — the two most commonly used pesticides in the world — as well as well as two other pesticides similar to atrazine. Despite the many known risks associated with all four toxins, hundreds of millions of pounds of them are dumped on U.S. […]

Combat Air Pollution: Save Women’s and Children’s Lives

The Health Assembly had never discussed this issue before […]
