EEA: Macedonia tops European pollution poll

Macedonia has been ranked Europe’s most polluted country with pollution spiking ten times over recommended levels, according to the European Environment Agency (EEA), Euronews reports.

“Heavy traffic and the use of heating stoves are causing an increase in dangerous air and sending more and more people to the doctors,” Euronews said, adding that “the government has now taken on the ambitious goal of improving air quality by 50 percent within two years.”
