Pollution Level Is Increasing Near the Equator

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill discovered that the pollution has increased worldwide. The scientists have said that the pollution level has increased rapidly in regions close to the equator.

The scientists have stated that the changing global release map is creating total ozone worldwide against the amount of pollution being emitted. The results received by the scientists have shown that the emission can also invite several respiratory issues such as stroke and asthma. Additionally, the researchers have also suggested that the issues can be solved with strategic policy planning only. The release is vastly increasing in places where there is a much greater effect on the structure of ozone, said the scientists.

Moreover, the scientists stated that the ozone is produced more at the places where there is a lot of sunlight and intense heat. The scientists have shown their study in the Nov-7 advance online matter of Nature Geo-science.
