It was funny to hear Tory MPs stand up in the House and say they’re following WHO guidelines on scheduling cannabis - when they’ve ignored nearly ten years of warnings and papers issued by the WHO on air quality. The Tories are very selective in what ideology they follow.
This is one area I don’t understand fighting against. What ever someone’s opinion is about global warming, I think everyone can agree that cities stink! No one ever said they were heading up to the city for some fresh air.
A lot of people died during that big smog issue in London. I’m sure people would be enraged if they saw the likes of that happening again, no?
Is planting trees and banning diesel vehicles really that hard? Or are all these cities downwind of coal generators?
Not being facetious, I am curious as to what the obstacles to getting cleaner air in these cities are.
These are EU air quality standards.
The government has the option of simply waiting a year and repealing them.
