Malta's Air Quality Officially Ranked In The Bottom 4 In Europe 😵
Alongside their weather forecast, Euronews publish an Air Quality Index for most major cities in Europe. Powered by Copernicus, the index is rated from 1 to 5, 1 being the best air quality and 5 being the worst. Alongside three other cities, Malta has been given an air quality index of 4, the worst rating in today's Euronews forecast.
What does a rating of 4 even mean? Well, there are 5 different categories which are ranked from best to worst, and the worst rating from among those 5 is used as the city's overall rating. For reference, London's forecast was a low rating of 2, which does not bode well for other countries considering London's bustling business environment (Malta's air essentially has double the amount of pollution).
The other 3 cities joining Malta in our suffocating state are Moscow, Murcia, and Málaga (the latter 2 both in Spain. Los Pollution they call it).
Air quality is increasingly becoming a very sore topic, especially right now with trees being uprooted to make way for more roads, and every day more and more cars are joining our streets.
