The future s mighty bright, isn t it?
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan today revealed depressing new proposals, which would see road signs, SMS alerts and social media warnings used to inform the public about air pollution hotspots and periods of particularly poor air quality.
Khan reckons Londoners need a better understanding of all the shit that goes into our lungs, so we either stop giving a toss about anything or completely abandon vehicles and start wearing those air pollution mask things.
What seems more likely?
The mayor will launch a formal public consultation on a number of air pollution policies in the coming weeks and he said plans to boost awareness of air pollution episodes would be launched as part of the new policy package.
