Climate scientists from around the globe have laid out the maximum amount of CO2 that can be emitted into the atmosphere while still maintaining the 2°C increase in temperature. This threshold is called the carbon budget. But what exactly is it?
Traffic congestion and air pollution
George Washington University
Traffic congestion in urban cities have contributed a significant portion of greenhouse gases like CO2 to air pollution and that has direct correlation to an increase of health effects, especially asthma in children.
