Letter: The UK has already broken its legal air pollution limit for the entire year

Date published: 07 January 2017


Dear Editor,

We’re just a few days into 2017, but the UK has already broken its legal air pollution limit for the entire year.

Lots of things contribute to this crisis, but there is one obvious place to start, the thousands of new diesel cars rolling onto our roads every day.

Diesel cars were sold as a green choice, but car makers lied about how much they pollute. We shouldn’t punish drivers who chose diesel cars in good faith, but we can stop putting more of them on the roads.

I just signed this Greenpeace petition to stop the sale of new diesel cars, and make cleaner alternatives available to everyone.

Could concerned readers of Rochdale Online please sign and share this petition too?

Thank you.

Yours,

Andrew Wastling
