London's deadly air pollution puts pressure on UK government | Focus on Europa

Rosamund Kissi-Debrah won a court ruling that London’s air pollution is officially responsible for the death of her daughter. In the world’s first ruling of its kind, she hopes to put pressure on politicians to curb air pollution.
Although the most polluting vehicles have been banned from London’s streets, authorities are struggling to get a grip on the situation. At one south London school, parents have taken matters into their own hands: They have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds to install air purifiers in classrooms.

  1. *Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. There is no other intermediary. May Jesus Bless you, trust Him, give your life – and He will take care of it :pray Convert yourself and believe in the Gospel – Romans 10 8-10 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.♡.*<3

  2. I used to walk like 20-30 minutes along the main hi-way of West Kensington Central London to Hospital where i work as a frontliner but then when i started to notice that i get short of breath and my Oxygen saturation went down from 100% to 95% on room air then that's when I started to take the bus instead thinking that the reason i desaturated was because of the polluted air i inhaled when i was walking.

  3. The main fking reason why london is so fking polluted is because 2/3rds of every road has been shutdown to not allow cars and lorres to go about their daily business without being inba traffic jam…… IE Bus lanes not for use at all times and cycle lanes that are fuckingempty! Jesus h christ.

  4. A variety of things could be done to help improve the air quality in London. Travelling around by bus instead of a car will help. One bus could potentially keep about 30+ cars off the road at any one time.

  5. London is #60 on the list of major cities air quality rankings. 59 cities worse than London, including Warsaw and Los Angeles. Sure, try to improve, but it is hardly a crisis in London. Go to Delhi or Lahore or Chengdu if you want to see bad air quality. Berlin is #27, why not report on your own air first @DW?
