Photo by Matthieu Paley @paleyphoto / Worldwide, air pollution kills millions every year, like a pandemic in slow motion. Here, coal smoke puffs from the chimneys of houses and gers in the early morning in Ulaanbaatar. The capital of Mongolia has grown rapidly and in an unplanned way in recent years, as nomadic herders have left the countryside and settled on the city's outskirts. Experts say insulating gers and providing better power connections would reduce home coal-burning and improve air quality. This is an unpublished image, part of a global story titled “The Deadly cost of Dirty Air” that appears in the April edition of National Geographic magazine.

Living in simple houses or round tents called gers, with inadequate or no electricity, they burn coal to keep warm through the harsh winters. One study found that children in the capital had 40 percent lower lung function than rural kids—a red flag for long-term health problems.This is the opening image of a global story titled “The Deadly cost of Dirty Air” that appears in the April edition of National Geographic magazine.
