And here:An Estimate of the Global Burden of Anthropogenic Ozone and Fine Particulate Matter on Premature Human Mortality Using Atmospheric Modeling(Susan C. Anenberg, Larry W. Horowitz, Daniel Q. Tong, J. Jason West, Environmental health Perspectives, Apr. 9, 2010)
And here:Air Pollution Kills More Than 2 Million a Year(John Metcalfe, Atlantic Cities, Jul. 16, 2013)
Today we review a map showing levels of pollution, expressed in terms of premature deaths per year per 1,000 km2. The map was based on global atmospheric modeling which shows the relative impact of air pollution (specifically PM2.5) on human mortality between 1850 and 2000. Not surprisingly, the most polluted areas lie in China and India. Somewhat surprisingly, the southeast states in the USA show improvement as a result of cleaner ways of producing cotton and a decrease in local biomass burning.
