Report shows Edmonton air pollution levels spiking to dangerous limits

A new air quality study in Edmonton is showing that our pollution levels are getting way out of hand.

The latest report from Alberta Environment shows that pollutants that effect your lungs and heart, are spiking at level that exceed government standards.

Chris Severson-Baker, from the Environmental think-tank known as the Pembina Institute, tells 630CHED’s Ryan Jespersen Show, the alarming levels need to to decline.

“There is no safe level of exposure to some of these compounds,” says Severson-Baker. “What the limits tell you is that overall there’s to much pollution in the airshed, so you’re getting spikes that go above the line.”

Severson-Baker says government levels for some of those dangerous emissions will continue to decline – – so to keep up, Edmonton needs to start lowering pollution levels now.
