Doesn't it seem strange though that individuals are actually allowed
to cause such harm to others with their polluting motor vehicles and
why is there no legal redress to this?


http://airtext.infoshows how the pollution is distributed over London
this morning.


Change all max speed limits to minimum speed limits. At a stroke, cars
would spend less time on the roads, and there would be less congestion.


What about bottlenecks where the speedy drivers will end up sitting
stationary while still pumping out their nasty pollution?


Absolutely.

We could clear a lot of bottlenecks by abolishing bus-lanes and re-phasing
traffic lights so as to improve junction capacity.

Others could be ameliorated by instituting a proper road-building and
improvement programme.

Doug.


Would it be correct to say that mean life expectancy has roughly
doubled since the invention of the motor car, and continues to increase?

No, it wouldn't.
And even if it was, correlation is not causation.

significantly since the invention of the motor car, and that it continues to

Doug.


Move away from London. *Nasty place anyway.


Unfortunately the pollution is nation wide and there is no
escape from it.


Fine here in Kent. *Clear as a bell.


Typically anecdotal. So the government should stop worrying people
I suppose, just because you think everything is OK?


Toxic ozone from cars is invisible.
Alsohttp://www.airtext.info/shows'High' pollution


Funny how the defra website with today's stats on has the pollution
at LOW at 95 sites and MODERATE at 27 sites. High isn't even on the
map.


That's real stats, taken from 3pm today.


Link?


Looks like your link is a load of ****e, as per usual Doug.


So why don't you publish yours then?


I thought you might have the brains to find it. It is, after all,
DEFRA's air pollution site - with measurements taken every few hours
and published soon after. It even explains in great detail what each
element is, and has records going back years.


Go on, I dare you. Try using google to find DEFRA's air pollution site
UK.


Your inability to support your claim with a link duly noted and I see
that you are also unilaterally deleting text you cannot deal with.


Your inability to use google or what passes for your brain noted.

It's DEFRA Doug FFS. The Department for Environment, Food, and Rural
Affairs.

www.defra.gov.uk

See if you can find it from there. It took me all of 10 seconds when I
looked yesterday.

You just don't get it do you? It is not good merely providing a link
to a massive website, you need to be more specific by providing a link
to the section in question, preferably also with a quote. You seem
completely unable to do this.

Your site is a load of ********.

What about the government pollution warning then? You don't like it do
you, because you pollute with your car.

How about this from the BBC?


"Newspaper review:


Er that's a review of newspapers Doug. It's irrelevant. I suppose
they're also talking about the Royal Wedding too.


I had you killfiled for ages, as you were becoming boring. You're still
boring, but at least I don't feel grubby taking the **** out of you
like I do with Oldfield.


The newspapers also mention the government air pollution warning, as if
you didn't know.


It's a newspaper review, it's irrelevant Doug. Just like you.

Still deleting text you can't cope with, Mike?

Doug.
