Air Pollution Issue Suddenly Returns to the Fore

Move over climate change: air pollution is the new issue in town | John Vidal | Environment |

Here's Jenny Jones, the Green London mayoral candidate:

"Getting clean air is rapidly emerging as the number one environmental and public health issue. This is hardly surprising when both the government and mayor have done so little about the pollution which is killing the equivalent of an estimated 4,300 Londoners every year. The real test for mayoral candidates is whether they can agree to take real action to reduce traffic, lower fares and create a very low-emission zone which only allows the cleanest of vehicles to enter central London."
