UCP Budget cuts, & Deadly Air Pollution

November 25, 2019

Michael Brauer, a 2017 Wall Scholar, spoke with Charles Adler on Global News Radio about the health risks associated with air pollution. Dr. Brauer recently published an extensive study on the effects of air pollution in Canada, noting that approximately 100,000 people die each year from pollution-related illnesses.  Those in Canada’s largest cities are expected to fair the worst under current projections. 

Michael Brauer’s research focuses on linkages between the built environment and human health, with a specific interest in transportation-related and biomass air pollution. While at the Peter Wall Institute, Micheal Brauer developed research on “healthy cities” and the relationship between urban form and urban services. 

Brauer’s interview begins at 29:45.
