Air Pollution Is Shortening Your Life. Here’s How Much.

Air pollution is shaving months — and in some cases more than a year — off your life expectancy, depending on where you live, according to a study published Wednesday.

Worldwide, outdoor air pollution reduces the average life expectancy at birth by one year. The effect is much more pronounced in some countries: It cuts the average Egyptian’s life span by 1.9 years and the average Indian’s by 1.5 years. In Russia, it’s around nine months.

For the United States, it’s less, currently reducing the life expectancy of an American born today by a little more than four months on average.

Those findings come as the Trump administration is proposing a loosening of pollution controls from coal-fired power plants.

Only the elite Liberals who work in offices or the ones who don;t work at all worry. Hard working Reps., Guys/gals that work in foundries, on the streets laying black top, in the factories,in the mines, on farms, as fireman, as cosmetic hair dressers, or any industry that in itself, exposes them to hazardous working conditions could give a rat's ass, these are the folks that end up with bladder cancer and qll kinds of problems associated with their work.

Bullshit by idiots who don't understand how studies based on aggregate averages like this are done. Or are simply misrepresenting the case for political purposes.

And Trump isn't "loosening" anything. You can't loosen something that never happened. The *proposed* Obama regulations never went into effect and were shot down by the Supreme Court as one of his many unconstitutional overreaches.
