Environmentalism – back to basics

CO2 emissions are the big thing – so we forget everything else?

Many European cities have had / have problems with air pollution this winter. Some cities have forbidden cars entering the city centers as the air quality have gone below minimum levels set. People with breathing disorders have had real trouble.

The pollution is caused by burning heating oils, wood fires and cars working below optimal conditions.

WHO contends that small particles  and gases in the air  is causing chronic lung diseases, circulatory illnesses. The air also contains PAH(polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) and metals.

Diesel cars also produce more soot than petrol driven cars. Some cities in Germany forbid diesel cars from entering certain central city zones.

Let us get back to clearing up this mess!
