THIS AIR IS TOXIC – SHEFFIELD AIR POLLUTION

The system that we live in is doing untold damage to the living world.

 

This includes the invisible harm vehicles do to our bodies, as well as CO2 which is causing climate collapse. Nitrogen dioxide and microscopic particulate matter cause

  • heart disease

  • strokes

  • lung diseases

  • asthma

  • mental health problems, and

  • harm brain development in children

according to the World Health Organisation

 

Many places in Sheffield are breaking legal maximums (although scientists advise that no level is 'safe' - so lower is always better).
