UK: Support the Clean Air Act

With 8% of all premature deaths having links to air pollution, the United Kingdom’s air quality standard is low within major Western countries.

The UK will continue to lag behind unless something is done to deal with this health crisis. The new Clean Air Act will stop long term idling of vehicles, expand the use of Clean Air zones, restrict the sale of diesel vehicles, and require law enforcement officers to plant trees. This bill would also protect green spaces and tackle some of the major contributors to air pollution in the UK’s urban areas.
