Ambrose WHO

Will the Tories new anti-smog legislation meet WHO standards?

The World Health Organisation on Thursday launched stringent guidelines for air pollution that it said could cut pollution-related deaths in the dirtiest cities by as much as a sixth. WHO said reducing particulate matter from 70 to 20 micrograms per cubic metre could cut deaths by 15 per cent. Even in the European Union, where big efforts had been made to cut pollution in cities, particulate matter cut nearly nine months off the average lifespan.

Who knows. They still are plugging away at their Mulroney policy redux. So this will give them a chance to catch up to world standards. But of course we know how they feel about the UN and world standards.
