Activity: OtherTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Media article or participation


Dr Gary Fuller, Environmental Research Group, has written a piece on how the government has missed the deadline of 2010 to meet European Limits for nitrogen dioxide. Commenting on how the happened, he wrote: 'Over the last 15 years a huge growth in the proportion of diesel vehicles on our roads has compounded the problem. Today, the locations with greatest nitrogen dioxide are close to major roads in urban centres, especially in locations that are dominated by diesel traffic, including the buses, taxis and delivery vehicles that make our cities work.'
