If 7 million people were standing under an EPA approved smokestack scrubber when it collapsed than I agree

Government greed, corruption and lies linked to 262 million murders of their own citizens since the year 1900.

Technically if you are smoking a cigarette you are being exposed to “air pollution”.

If that is not what they mean, then I call BS.

This may include deaths of indigenous people who cook with fire, be it wood, dung, peat or whatever.

But 7 million seems like a lot.

Yeah. I’d love to see the methodology behind this.

“Hey Kofi, how many people, do you think?”

“I dunno. 7 million sounds good.”

Lies, lies, lies. The order of the day is lies and more lies to further an evil agenda.

I think they are counting asphyxiation of people cramped into small rooms, which leads them directly to the evils of that nasty CO2. Everyone should try to breath about half the air they presently breath, taking smaller breaths, and holding them in a little longer. That has the double advantage of inhaling fewer pollutants, and exhaling less CO2.

People who exercise a lot are particularly bad CO2 polluters. There should be a carbon tax on jogging, running, aerobics, active sports and so on. The proceeds should go to the WHO to fund more of these enlightening studies.

Yes. The poor women who spend all day in a hut with a smoky dung fire didn’t live long. Some good philantropic organizations work to educate and equip these women with better stoves that burn hotter and cleaner, with less fuel (requiring less drudgery to collect.)

It’s dishonest for them to call this “air pollution” when it’s more like smoking or industrial exposure.
