I remember being told I had developed athletic induced asthma my freshman year in college after feeling like my lungs stopped working the last leg of my race (It took everything in me to stop running but I knew something wasn’t right).
One contributor to athletic induced asthma is high pollution levels which causes poor air quality. (Lucky me, I grew up in Los Angeles, pollution city).
Diesel engines, ports, motor vehicles and factories are main sources of air pollution in Los Angeles. Frequent sunny days and low rainfall contribute to ozone formation as well as high levels of fine particles and dust.
These two circles represent data collected from inpex.com and their sustainable development scenario energy mix based off (2019 vs 2040).
The left depicts how our current energy demand for coal, oil, nuclear, hydro, bio energy, and other renewables will grow four-fold in the period from 2019 to 2040.
The right depicts how energy efficiency changes can be improved significantly and how our primary energy demand can decrease towards 2040.
