Europe's Coal Pollution Problem by Europe Beyond Coal

19,500 people across Europe and beyond died prematurely in 2015 due to coal pollution from EU coal plants. Unless we accelerate the phaseout of coal plants, more people will needlessly suffer health problems, and have their lives cut short.

This timelapse animation shows the movement of PM2.5 air pollution from the EU's coal plants across Europe, with one frame shown per hour, every hour, all year.
