Clotilde Nonnez, A perisian women who has lived in Paris for the last 3 decades is reported to have seen her health deteriorate because of bad air and is accusing the state of failing to protect her from the air pollution in Paris.

She says her health became worse than ever when pollution in Paris  hit record breaking levels last december in 2016. She claims she had nearly died due to the spike in pollution and her breathing difficulties triggered a “serious cadiac problem”.

Her lawyer added that air pollution is causing 48,000 French deaths every year and states that his client was seeking 140,000 euros ($158,000) for the damage to her health caused by the state’s “culpable incompetence” on pollution.

“We are taking the state to task because we think the medical problems that pollution victims suffer are as a result of the authorities’ lack of action in tackling air pollution,” François Lafforgue told Le Monde newspaper.

And since the effects are so visible for all victims, they are hoping that the authorities take the full measure of the problem.

Paris has struggled for years to combat high levels of smog and the authorities have introduced fines for any vehicle not carrying a “Crit’Air” emissions category sticker – part of a scheme to promote lower-emitting vehicles.
