• EMB: Colder weather worsens air pollution


    The Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) in Cordillera has advised the public to take extra care because  the air quality in the city and other areas could worsen due to the colder weather being experienced for the past months. EMB-Cordillera Administrative Region Planning Division OIC-Chief Wilhelmina Lagunilla said the city’s cold weather could cause the total particulate matter of pollutants such as vehicle emissions to stay in the air longer and might be breathed in by pedestrians and commuters. The traffic congestion at the Central Business     District is seen as one of the sources of pollutants particularly during the weekends when number coding is lifted and all sorts of vehicles ply the city’s main thoroughfares.
