Around 180,000 people die because of air pollution in the European Union every year. Jason West, a professor of environmental science at the University of North Carolina, said that this number is higher than the count scientists expected about a decade ago. It seems surprising to know that 16,221 deaths are caused by agriculture, which is second to 16,929 deaths caused by power plants.
Carcasses of about 25 Pacific Walrus have been found on an isolated northwest Alaska beach by a person at the Air Forceradar station at Cape Lisburne, 230 miles northeast of the Bering Strait. Walrus, found in the Chukchi Sea north of the Bering Strait, are mostly females who breed in the Bering Sea.
