WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE PEOPLE AND THEIR ENVIRONMENT?
Air pollution is one of the two major problems in Rome. Motorized vehicle cause most of the air pollution. The city's carbon monoxide levels sometimes get too high which can possibly damage the historical sites. Breathing in the polluted air might also cause negative health conditions. At times, it results in emergency situations.
