Latest data from the Commons Environment Audit Committee warns that up to 50,000 people each year are meeting a premature death in the UK thanks to air pollution, with an annual health care bill of up to Â£20.2 billion. The biggest culprit? Transport, responsible for 70 percent of pollution in towns and cities.
That's the UK, the pollution in China is worse by orders of magnitude, literally millions of people a year will be dying there from lung diseases.
People don't take traffic pollution seriously because they can't see it, even though the number of deaths caused dwarfs vehicle accident deaths.
