FLICKR, DAVID HOLTIndoor and outdoor air pollution contribute to the deaths of around 18,000 people per day, worldwide, the International Energy Agency noted in a report released today (June 27). Altogether, air pollution—derived largely from industrial energy production and use—is linked to 6.5 million premature deaths annually, the Paris-based intergovernmental organization noted. “Clean air is vital for good health,” the agency said in a statement. “Yet despite growing recognition of this imperative, the problem of air pollution is far from solved in many countries, and the global health impacts risk intensifying in the decades to come.”

In 2014, World Health Organization (WHO) dubbed air pollution the leading environmental health risk.
