via Air pollution will kill thousands in Europe, EEA warns | EurActiv.

It seems that many people in the UK, especially in London will die prematurely from failure to adopt EU leglislation in a timely manner.

Thoughts?

  1. The solution to air pollution is to be found in Salzburg, Austria, where the entire City is free of cars, and where an efficient park and walk system plus proper policing keeps the place safe.

    London needs a system of trams, electric taxis and a modern tube system, plus out of city park and rides. Similarly, we need Boris Island, as Heathrow Airport creates antimony poisoning and thus contributes to dementia, as is the case under the Luton, Gatwick and Stansted flight paths, where antimony from aircraft fuel adds to the incidence of dementia, and brings forward the day when the NHS and the Adult Social Care systems implode financially.

    Lorries delivering things to London need to be fitted with scrubbers to eliminate diesel particulates and do so only at night when commuters are not there and all roads into and out of London need to be lined with trees to increase oxygen content.

    As Dr Alf knows, this will not happen because the costs of these measures are treated separately by civil servants and blinkered town hall apparachiks who will do nothing until the costs of doing nothing are outweighed by the benefits of taking decisive action.
