The air we breathe

14 July 2016

We monitor various weather and environmental indicators. One of the most significant is the quality of the air. This can vary considerably depending on several factors like the weather and the levels of pollutants. 

Although people with respiratory conditions are most affected by poor air quality, it has an impact on all of us. The Mayor of London @MayorofLondon has plans to improve #AirQuality. If you want to take a quick survey or join in discussions, check out @LDN_talk
