Sources of inequity in exposure to fine particulate air pollution
Thursday, October 28, 2021
Racial-ethnic minorities in the United States are exposed to disproportionately high levels of fine particulate air pollution (PM2.5), the largest environmental cause of human mortality. Prof. Chris Tessum (Univ. of Illinois) will describe the exposure disparity, including relevant spatial scales, locations, types of PM2.5 emissions sources and relationships between exposure and economic consumption activities. Potential paths to better outcomes will be discussed.
