  1. I thought they were saying, on BBC Breakfast this morning, that children in London are subject to higher pollution levels than other cities in the UK.

    I remember the pollution when I was a kid, it was visible as so much coal was being burnt etc. The content of the pollution has changed radically. Now it is almost invisible, much of it being carbon-monoxide and/or nitrous-oxide.
