Pollution

Pollution in the urban environment can only considered a NUISANCE to everyday people.  If it were anything more than that, like ‘life threatening’ or ‘detrimental’ to our health than surely the government would have a Duty of Care to protect its citizens , That’s right isn’t it?

So until proven to be dangerous and linked to ill health, here’s how the land lies!

Pollution is made of two distinct categories:

  1. Gases and Vapours
  2. Particulates

Most types of pollution can be put into one or other category.

1. Gases & Vapours:
