Each year, millions of people die from exposure to air pollution. And if unaddressed, climate change could bring those numbers up even higher by the end of the century.
Carolina researcher Jason West predicts that climate change’s effect on air pollution could actually cause 260,000 more premature deaths in 2100.
In this week’s episode, we talk about climate change and air pollution with West, an associate professor of environmental sciences and engineering in the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health.
Join us every Wednesday for the University’s podcast as we talk with Carolina’s newsmakers and experts. Each episode, students, faculty, staff and alumni will discuss what’s going on in classrooms, labs and around campus, and how it pertains to the local, national and international headlines.
