Did Some Just Cough?

Our last three articles covered pollution created by power plants that produce energy by burning coal and fossil fuels; and their negative effects on air quality and the planet. But let’s not forget their negative effect on something just as important – YOU.

But it’s not just us saying it. A study done by National Geographic showed that  Greenhouse gases have far-ranging environmental and health effects.

They cause climate change by trapping heat, and they also contribute to respiratory disease from smog and air pollution. Extreme weather, food supply disruptions, and increased wildfires are other effects of climate change caused by greenhouse gases. 

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) released research results that show an alarming increase in respiratory disease related deaths, specifically:

Between 1980 and 2014, the rate of death from chronic respiratory diseases, such as COPD, increased by nearly 30 percent overall in the US.

Long-term exposure to polluted air can have permanent health effects such as: Accelerated aging of the lungs. Loss of lung capacity and decreased lung function. Development of diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and possibly cancer.
