Air Pollution Causes

I'm currently investigating the air pollution problem in London and I would like to receive some answers to the following questions:

1) What is the biggest cause of air pollution in big cities after traffic?

2) what would be in your opinion the most efficient way to inform the public on how to reduce air pollution?

3) Are zero emission vehicles enough to tackle air pollution?

Your reply would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, yanina555,

different pollutants are released into the atmosphere from a wide range of sources, including industry, transport, agriculture, waste management and households. Certain air pollutants are also released from natural sources. In cities vehicle exhaust, road dust re-suspension and burning of wood, fuel or coal for domestic heating are important local sources.

However, reducing emissions in an area or from specific sources do not automatically result in lower concentrations. Some pollutants can stay in the atmosphere long enough to be transported from one country to another, from one continent to another, or in some cases around the globe. Thus, improving air quality requires tackling many different pollutants from different sources over the long term.

My goodness, you are some liar! The worst air pollutants are CHEMTRAILS (1:23 min.) (Gunderson 2:16 min.)(one of the many murdered truthers)
(just two of the hundreds of video-proofs)
Also next is THE FIRST BAN ON CHEMTRAILS AND MORE!! Finally, the ball started rolling!

"The Richmond, California City Council has voted to ban airborne chemtrails and other weapons systems that target residents with mind-control technology. The council voted 5-2 in favor of the resolution after hearing reports by dozens of victims claiming that chemtrails, particle beams and electromagnetic radiation were causing them pain..."
THAT IS THE TRUTH!! The vatican, UN and governments want to force CARBON TAXES on the population while it's THEM doing all the pollution!! Do not believe government sites for information. Next is a (short) video about Al Gore and global warming-lie!
Please spread the word of truth and God bless.
