The third International Clean Air Day for blue skies will be held on September 7, 2022, themed “The Air We Share” after the United States passed the biggest climate tax bill ever. American history – a historic victory for the United States and the world. Because air pollution is the greatest contributor to the environmental burden of disease and one of the leading preventable causes of death and disease worldwide. 99% of the world’s population now breathes polluted air, warns the WHO.
