Clean air on our planet is, but it is far
We All know about the strong pollution of urban air and from time to time go outside the city or even in Park. Relatively humid areas, in the parks and villages the air is very fresh, but clean it can not be called. Walk in the parks many people whose clothing emits microscopic particles of perfume, and cigarettes emit hazardous substances. Even in the villages of clean air not to find, because everywhere running farm machinery, and cars were not uncommon. But how on the planet place with truly clean air without any exhaust and produced by other substances? American scientists believe that they even showed where it is.
Scientists logically assumed that the clean and fresh air in the world needs to be where there are no people. So over the United States, Russia and other countries to seek a breath of freshness and cleanliness just not worth it — the air is so polluted that scientists do not know how to clean it. And over the so-called Southern ocean, which surrounds Antarctica and represents a set of Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans, clean air, it is possible to look. What? There is solid water and, except for occasionally flying aircraft and ships, there are no air polluting factors.

The Verification of this assumption has engaged the crew of the research vessel SOCRATES. The researchers kept way from the Australian island of Tasmania to the glaciers of Antarctica and from time to time took air samples. Mostly they were interested in what kind of bacteria it contains. If the air on the alleged site really clean, the bacteria would be exclusively "Maritime", that is hit in the air straight out of the water. But if scientists are found in the air of bacteria third-party origin, it would mean that they came from the densely populated areas of our planet. From this the researchers could conclude that the area of Antarctica is not well isolated from the rest of the world and on our planet there is no place with clean air.
Fortunately, the air over the Southern ocean was indeed clean. Having studied collected from the air of bacteria, scientists have come to the conclusion that they are of aqueous origin. In the end, they concluded that in the vicinity of Antarctica no air polluting factors. Clean the work done, they believe, because he asked for trial "as to the jewelry" and conducted research in the laboratories so they were able to prevent contamination of air samples.
About this beauty can be seen in the place with the cleanest air on the planet
From Now on we can assume that the cleanest air in the world is located in the neighborhood of the southern ocean. Only here for a more convincing scientist ought to check what substances are contained in the air is a very valuable and interesting information. For example, it would be nice to know how high where the concentration of ozone, which is the main enemy of intestinal bacteria. In the cities the concentration of this gas is very high and it destroys 128 species of bacteria, necessary for the proper functioning of our body.
With all this willing to believe that near Antarctica there is a 2.5-micrometer dust particles, which in academia is referred to as PM2.5. Basically they go up in the air due to the movement of cars and constitute an integral part of the asphalt and exhaust fumes — in the ocean of equipment a little, so sources of PM2.5 virtually no. Their tiny size allows them to settle in the lungs and even penetrate into the bloodstream to spread to all the body organs. In the long run, because of these tiny particles, people have serious disease, and in children .

So, one of the most "fresh" places on Earth found. Now it is hoped that no rich man will not want to go to these places to breathe fresh air, which in nature are almost inaccessible. For hundreds of years mankind has spoiled the environment and realized their mistake too late. Yes, many companies are now trying to get electricity from solar energy, and car manufacturer to introduce electric engines, which produce exhaust gases. But even under the best circumstances, our planet will recover soon.
Perhaps beginning in 2020, the pandemic coronavirus is an attempt of nature to recover from harmful effects of people. Many researchers report that since the closure of many factories of air on our planet has indeed become cleaner. Read more about this wrote my colleague Love Sokovikova — highly recommend .
