Coal in Poland Lowering Life Spans
1 New York Times
1.1 Poland has the highest levels in Europe of the tiny pollution particles that are strongly linked to serious health problems like heart attacks, strokes, cancer and even dementia, said Martin Adams, an air quality expert at the European Environment Agency.
1.1.1 The European Commission has opened infringement proceedings against Poland for violating particle pollution levels and is investigating reports that it has also exceeded limits on nitrogen oxides. More than 43,000 Poles died prematurely because of air pollution in 2011, the most recent year for which figures are available, the European Environment Agency estimated.

2.1 Poland’s second largest city is as famed for the filthy smog that cakes its buildings and streets, as for its beautiful historic buildings. The European Environmental Agency has ranked it the third most polluted city in Europe and its particulate matter (PM) pollution can reach six times the safe levels.
2.1.1 Poland emits more greenhouses gases and sulphur dioxide from coal than any other European country, and also has the continent’s highest coal-related health costs, with around 45,000 premature deaths each year attributed to coal burning. The country’s prime minister, Ewa Kopacz, last week announced a plan to transfer publicly-owned stakes in coal companies such as PGE for use as collateral in their buy-out of TF Silesia, a highly unprofitable national coal firm.
