KATOWICE, POLAND (OCTOBER 29, 2018) (REUTERS) SMOG HANGING IN AIR OVER KATOWICE SMOG COVERING SUN TRAFFIC PASSING ON HIGHWAY TRAFFIC DRIVING ON ROAD VARIOUS OF MUSEUM LOCATED IN CONVERTED MINE BUILDINGS MAYOR OF KATOWICE MARCIN KRUPA SITTING FOR INTERVIEW WITH JOURNALISTS KRUPA SPEAKING KRUPA'S HANDS (SOUNDBITE) (Polish) MAYOR OF KATOWICE, MARCIN KRUPA, SAYING: "Everyone has someone who worked in the mines or still works in the mines, so there are certain mining traditions that have been uninterrupted for many, many years. And now breaking this impasse by the necessity of switching to another source of energy is a bit difficult. But through this education, we see that it succeeds. We see it more and more often that a grandchild asks their grandmother or grandfather: 'Why are you burning this, not something else? You see the smoke coming out of chimney and this smoke is bad for us.' And people are becoming more and more aware." WOMEN WALKING ACROSS ROAD BY SIGN SHOWING AMOUNTS OF POLLUTANTS IN AIR SIGN SHOWING VALUES FOR SULPHUR DIOXIDE (SOUNDBITE) (Polish) MAYOR OF KATOWICE, MARCIN KRUPA, SAYING: "What we save from burning poor quality fuels, we will then pay in much larger amounts to improve our health, which is (paying for) the cost of treatment. And it is clearly calculated that for a city like Katowice with a population of 300,000, more or less 700 people die every year only because of bad air quality." SIGN READING (Polish): "FACULTY OF EARTH SCIENCES, UNIVERSITY OF SILESIA" VARIOUS OF AIR MONITORING EQUIPMENT (SOUNDBITE) (Polish) POST DOCTORAL RESEARCHER AND COORDINATOR OF AIR MONITORING PROJECT AT UNIVERSITY OF SILESIA, MARIOLA JABLONSKA, SAYING: "First of all, we are investigating the pollutants' composition and this allows us to pinpoint the sources of the pollution, where can the pollution come from and this is one, let's say, added value (of this research) which helps us define what is the source of pollution and from how far away the pollution is coming. This is the first thing. The second important aspect that we are analysing is the composition of pollutants depending on particle size, which affects the health aspect. The smallest particles enter the respiratory system and they have an impact on our health, so knowing the composition and the amount of the pollutants' particles (in the air) will be the part of our research which will matter for society."
