This summer, millions of people were exposed to toxic bushfire smoke for weeks, fueled by climate change that could very well worsen in the years to come if we don’t take action.
Seeing Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney on the world’s most polluted cities list put air pollution on the map for all of us.
Each year, almost 5000 Australians die from exposure to air pollution and thousands more suffer serious health issues like stroke, lung cancer and heart disease. And that’s without counting the new threat of bushfire smoke.
The NSW Parliament has launched an Inquiry into the health impacts of air pollution with a focus on the bushfires – it’s critical they hear from those affected.
Will you make a submission to the Inquiry and have your say on the impacts of air pollution and how the government should protect our health?
