A new study from MIT’s Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment finds that air pollution causes 200,000 early deaths every year in the United States. The team examined ground-level emissions from industrial power plants, vehicle tailpipes, commercial and residential heating and other sources to reach the conclusion. The worst state for air pollution is California with an early mortality figure of 21,000, while Baltimore is the city with the highest emissions-related mortality rate — 130 out of 100,000 residents die annually from air pollution.
