Air quality deteriorates to unhealthy levels in two Hungarian cities

Air quality deteriorates to unhealthy levels in two Hungarian cities

The air quality in the cities of Dunaújváros and Szeged has deteriorated to unhealthy levels, Hungary’s national environmental health institute (OKI) said on Saturday.

In ten other cities and towns — Budapest, Győr, Pécs, Százhalombatta, Szekesfehérvár, Szolnok, Szombathely, Tököl, Vác and Várpalota — concentrations of particulate matter (PM10) in the air exceed what is considered to be a safe level, OKI said.

The institute said on Friday that PM10 concentrations in those cities exceeded the daily limit set by the European Commission.

The effects of the air pollution level in these cities can be dangerous for vulnerable groups such as children, people suffering from a chronic illness and the elderly, OKI added.

    It’s funny how these clowns back in Brussells can come up with acceptable levels of pollution and apply it evenly to the entire continent without taking a look or examining the sources of pollution. Old wood burning stoves vs newer technology and older vehicles vs newer for example. Which parts of the continent have which and why? Brussells, why not get some solutions out on the matter instead of setting ridiculous levels and limits to those who cannot afford it in the first place. Your infringement attitude to everything is on an idiot scale, awe inspiring.

    Budapest air quality is “HORRIBLE” especially in and around Clark Adam Ter where the “OLD” tour buses, Big Bus Hop on, Hop Off and others operate with very old diesel polluting fumes constantly.
    City is way too small and inadequate to handle the huge volumn of tourist vehicles.
    No POLICE to direct & handle traffic and the excessive noise from motorcycles scooters and hi performance cars.
    Look at the filthy dirty buildings all over the city, dog urine, (pee) stains on sidewalks and bldgs.
    NOT A VERY CLEAN CITY and the AGGRESSIVE ATTITUDE of the people just adds to a very unpleasant time spent here.
    CLEAN UP THE TRASH, CORRECT THE NOISE LEVEL AND TELL THE PEOPLE TO GET A LIFE!
    NEVER COMING BACK!
