Mortality from air pollution in Europe is twice as high as previous estimates

Scientists insist: air pollution kills 800,000 people a year in Europe, it’s time to stop burning fossil fuels.

According to a study published in the European Heart Journal, twice as many people die from air pollution in Europe than previously thought.

Using a new method of modelling the impact of different sources of air pollution on mortality, the researchers found that it had resulted in 790,000 additional deaths across Europe, of which 659,000 were attributable to 28 States of the European Union. Between 40 and 80% of the causes of these deaths were related to heart attacks and strokes, so air pollution caused twice as many deaths from cardiovascular diseases than from respiratory diseases, which were taken into account in 2015 studies.

Volkswagen’s radical strategy: put everything on electricity

Volkswagen has set itself the goal of a possible profitable mass production of electric vehicles in the amount of 80 billion euros (91 billion us dollars) — a feat that no automaker has not even reached.

If Volkswagen realizes its ambitions to become a world leader in the field of electric vehicles, this will happen thanks to a radical and risky rate. The German giant placed a bet on 80 billion euros (91 billion us dollars) and the possibility of profitable mass production of electric vehicles — a feat that no automaker has achieved. So far, the plans of most major automakers have been one major goal: to protect profits from expensive cars with ice and to replenish their range and fleet with enough zero-emission vehicles to meet environmental standards.

Autopilot & Full Self-Driving: what Tesla Autonomous driving systems include

Since 2014, Tesla has been selling its electric cars with an Autonomous driving system that uses a variety of cameras, radars, and ultrasonic sensors located around the car.

The system includes a set of driver assistance functions that provide limited and enhanced self-driving capabilities on motorways. Initially, the system was offered as an option for the Model S, now the autopilot can be ordered for all Tesla models.

Now the Tesla Autonomous control system is the subject of controversy, in which opponents argue that it is too overrated and it will never be able to become fully Autonomous, and optimists and fans of the brand say that now the system significantly improves driving safety, and will soon become completely Autonomous.
