Green efforts fail to clean up Tel Aviv's dirty air

Abstract:
The severity of the air pollution in the city is illustrated when the levels of nanoparticles, less than 2.5 microns in diameter, are examined. These ultrafine particles represent the primary antagonist behind respiratory problems and heart damage as well as increased mortality as a result of short-term exposure. Last year the levels of nanoparticle pollution greatly exceeded the Israeli standard, even when accounting for the dust storms. Among the causes for high levels of these ultrafine particles are diesel engine exhaust emissions, which include known carcinogens.
