Environment ministry urges Athenians not to use fireplaces
The Environment and Energy ministry warned Athenians on Wednesday not to use their fireplaces, or solid fuel and biomass stoves for the next three days, as weather conditions will favour the creation of smog.
On Tuesday, the National Weather Service’s air pollution monitoring station network said it had recorded particularly high levels of PM-10, greater than 100 micrograms per cubic meter, raising the alarm for citizen’s health.
According to the ministry, the weather conditions in the next few days – no wind and thermal inversion – will favour the accumulation of pollution in the atmosphere.
