An article on the Guardian's website highlights the real dangers of air pollution and it's major causes.

In the article, MP's and Government officials are quite outspoken about their concerns such as Conservative MP Neil Parish, chairman of Efra, the environment, food and rural affairs select committee who says

"The government must act now to tackle this public health emergency, Poor air quality is damaging the UK’s environment and harming the nation’s health..."

Jenny Bates of Friends of the Earth says

"Dirty air is already the nation’s biggest killer after smoking. The solutions are out there but we need the government to listen to MPs and campaign groups and take more urgent action now."

The article discusses how different sectors such as farming, health and the automotive industry could do more to help the situation and Efra's plans for Clean Air Zones.
