Stand still at a busy crossroads
Yellow, grey and sticky, the air is stagnant. Smog.
Wind piled gases from vehicle engines’ and industrial facilities’ fuel burns tingle eyes and make us pant.
In humans, smog is known to make lung functions decrease, to induce problems in blood flow, to increase blood pressure and heart rhythm, to cause arrhythmia, obstructive pulmonary disease, peripheral vessel disease and neuro-degenerative illnesses. Smog provokes cognitive malfunction, fertility and foetal growth problems, miscarriages and premature births.
Owing to vehicle exhaust, more than 300.000 humans die prematurely each year across the globe.
A failed survival.
What is the number of plants and other critters?
