  • Pollution In India's Capital New Delhi Surges To 'Severe' And 'Hazardous' Levels

    According to a report by Reuters, this week, as pollution levels surged to 'severe' and hazardous' levels in New Delhi, there was little sign that residents of India's crowded capital were making any attempt to protect themselves. On Monday, the smog reportedly exposed people to as much as 24 times the recommended limits for dangerous particles, but unlike in many heavily-polluted Chinese cities, it is reportedly rare to see locals taking measures to reduce their exposure. The World Health Organization warns that India's smog problem extends far beyond the capital, as the nation of 1.3 billion has 14 out of the 15 most polluted cities in the world.

  • Vrai ou faux : la France est-elle le pays qui taxe le plus les cigarettes ?

    Au vu du niveau de taxation dans l'Hexagone, nous ne sommes pas loin d'être le pays qui taxe le plus les cigarettes. En effet, sur un paquet de tabac qui coûte 10 euros, 85% du prix part dans les caisses de l'État. Ce qui est trop élevé par rapport à la majorité de nos voisins européens avec la Belgique taxant à 78% et le Luxembourg à 69%. Cependant, nous ne sommes pas les champions, mais nous sommes sur le podium avec la Finlande et l'Estonie qui taxent les cigarettes plus que nous.
