Can you please provide me with information regarding air pollution statistics in G8 countries? Ideally, I ould appreciate if I could get hold of the emission levels of pollution during the last 50 years or so.

Barry's Response - Kavin: This information will be scattered about the net. It's easiest to search by country and compile the data yourself. It will also be hard to go back that far in history, as most data gathering started circa 1990.

Here are two examples. For Canada:

I would forward offline data if I had any. I have been using Google to search with with the terms

air (pollution or emission) (statistics or history) COUNTRY

If you perform a similar search for environmental impact assessment in your region, you could find that many of these reports contain the type of data you are looking for.

See what other air pollution statistics you get with these combinations.
