In this post, you will learn about the API that will give you accurate information about air quality.
What is Air Quality?
The air we breathe has an impact on our health and daily life. We all know the health risks of breathing in polluted air, but not many people know that it can also cause economic damages. The amount of pollution in the air poses a significant threat to the environment and our lives. In fact, almost 40% of deaths are linked to it.
What are the causes of air pollution?
Another important contributor to air pollution is carbon monoxide, which is produced by automobiles and other fossil-fuel-powered vehicles.
Where do pollutants come from?
These pollutants can have a negative impact on the environment and people’s health when they are allowed to build up in high concentrations or when they are breathed in by people.
How does air pollution affect us?
Air pollution has a range of effects on humans and animals. It can cause damage to the lungs, as well as to other organs like the heart and brain. It can also contribute to certain cancers as well as heart disease and stroke.
Air pollution can also negatively impact our mental health by causing stress and depression; it can also contribute to anxiety and other disorders.
How do we prevent air pollution?
We can also help by reducing our own personal emissions by avoiding driving or using other fossil-fuel-powered vehicles; opting for public transportation or electric cars instead; and avoiding cooking at all if we don’t need to use it at all possible times.
Another way we can help prevent air pollution is by planting trees or using green roofs or solar panels on buildings to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Air quality monitoring systems collect data on a variety of pollutants including:
This API will retrieve the current, historical, and forecasted Air Quality Index of any location in the world.
