Air pollution is one of the main problems of the modern world. The article “Revealed: every Londoner breathing dangerous levels of toxic air particle” by Matthew Taylor points out that every area in London has an exceed limit of one of the most toxic pollution particles in the air (PM2.5). This condition has short and long-term negative effects on the health of the residents. The government is encouraging to set up some plans to regulate and reduce the pollution as soon as possible. For example, the setting up of the T-Charge, which will impose an additional charge for more polluting vehicles entering central London and the initiative of the mayor to sign London up to the Breathe Life coalition, the body UN Environment and the Climate & Clean Air Coalition.
Just because we cannot see it does not mean pollution is not there. Obviously, the challenge with the environment must be taking seriously. However, to reduce all the excess of pollution, it would take a lot of years and dedication. It is better to start encouraging the society to take the right choices over polluting decisions now, for a better and healthier environment in the future.
