2 pt

Every human does this about 20,000 times per day.


2 pt

What is breathe in and out?


2 pt

This stuff changes the characteristics of our air, which can make it hard tobreathe and make existing respiratory and cardiac conditions worse.


2 pt

What is air pollution?


2 pt

These people breathe faster, drawing air deeper into their lungs, as a function of doing their job well.

This puts them at a higher risk from poor air quality.


2 pt

Who are athletes?


2 pt

These go through an automatic gas exchange thousands of times per day, about every 3 seconds, inside each of us.


2 pt

What are the lungs?


2 pt

These people are at higher risk of reacting to poor air quality because of increased likelihood of health problems .


2 pt

Who are seniors?


2 pt

These areas are often better suited for exercise because of reduced exposure to automobile exhaust.


2 pt

What are parks?


2 pt

Choices we make in our communities such as driving our cars or burning wood to heat our homes, significantly impact this.


2 pt

What is air quality?


2 pt

Just 10 seconds of this can use more fuel

than turning off the engine and restarting it.


2 pt

What is idling?


2 pt

It creates 50 % more emissions if it’s poorly maintained.


2 pt

What is your vehicle?


2 pt

It replaces up to 4 cars on the road while saving you time and money.


2 pt

What is carpooling?


2 pt

A full one takes up to 60 cars off the road.


2 pt

What is a bus?


2 pt

Your workplace might provide these for commuting by public transit or carpooling. If not, ask them to consider it.


2 pt

What are rewards/incentives?


2 pt

This is one of the largest sources

of air pollution in Canada.


2 pt

What is transportation


2 pt

If a million Canadians did this just one day every year, it’s estimated about 250 million kg of emissions would be eliminated.


2 pt

What is work from home?


2 pt

People can use this Index on a daily basis

to help decide if they should drive their vehicle

or choose a different mode of transportation

such as cycling or taking the bus.


2 pt

What is the Air Quality Health Index?


2 pt

This is the #1 cause of hospital admissions among children in Canada.


2 pt

What is asthma?


2 pt

Children are more vulnerable to air pollution because they do more of this, especially during summer when pollution levels can be higher.


2 pt

What is play outside?


2 pt

Young children can be more adversely affected by poor air quality because they do this more rapidly.


2 pt

What is breathe?


2 pt

Emissions from these can significantly

impact local air quality, visibility

and human health


2 pt

What are forest fires?


2 pt

Children and parents can check this index every day before school and work to help plan their daily outdoor activities.


2 pt

What is the Air Quality Health Index


2 pt

This gas shields us from the sun in the upper atmosphere,

but poses a risk to human health at ground level


2 pt

What is ozone?


2 pt

20% of the vehicles on the road travel less than ____ kilometres in one car trip.


2 pt

What is 1 kilometre?


2 pt

Running your gas powered lawnmower for this amount of time is equal to driving a new car between 320 and 480 kilometres.


2 pt

What is one hour?


2 pt

The number of Canadians who use public transit on a regular basis.


2 pt

What is 12 million?


2 pt

When the Air Quality Health Index is in the high range, lowering this

when outside can reduce air pollution impacts on your health.


2 pt

What is your amount of exertion?


2 pt
