Pollution is causing health issues across the country and stops the development of children in their education. In the aged people asthma, Heart Conditions, High Blood Pressure, Dementia, lack of energy, dizziness and exhaustion is on the rise.
UK does not seem to care about the environment. I grew up in the UK, and the air quality is getting even more toxic air quality!
There are a lot of ideas out there on what to do about UK's truly dangerous air. One idea is to get the UK to follow California's footsteps on the Zero Emmission Vehicle Program, which would help get more electric cars on the roads. There are also a few things in the works to limit wood burning and consumer products, as well as allocating funds to make major polluters more eco-friendly.
But during all this, people and the environment are suffering. Doctors have warned the air quality is so bad it's literally dangerous to leave your house, especially if you are a child, elderly person or pregnant person. Meaning that the most vulnerable among us are suffering while UK government does nothing.
It's clear that the private sector is hamstringing public officials from doing anything, even though that won't help economic growth in the long term. But they also need to hear from people like you and me.
