Since the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change’s latest report last year, there has been increasing concern about the impact of global warming on the air quality in cities around the world. Although there is still much that remains unknown, one thing is clear: adaptation and research must continue to ensure that current levels of clean air are maintained. With that in mind, here are some things you can do to protect your health and the environment.

Changing bad habits. The report discusses the need to reduce emissions as much as possible. However, it makes clear that even with mitigation efforts, there will be times when emissions surpass safe limits. Emissions that exceed safe limits can cause major damage to the environment, and could increase the risk of exposure. In such times, a person could consider switching to energy options that come from clean, renewable sources, which can be harnessed or recycled easily.
