Less smoke

17 March 2016



I have added my signature to those of the mayors of 20 European cities who are concerned about an imminent change in legislation allowing the car industry to exceed EU pollution limits. It is out duty to look after the health of the residents of our cities. But how can we do that if the European Union approves a law with measures that allow an increase in pollution at the cost of human health? What can we say to parents whose children are suffering from serious respiratory diseases, to older people or those who are most vulnerable? We call on the governments of our states to take this matter very seriously and not give in to pressure from any lobbying. Seriously: health comes first! ‪#‎Lesssmoke‬‬‬‬‬ ‪#‎Cities4Climate‬‬‬‬‬
