UK government: Cut toxic diesel emissions
We’re just a few days into 2017, and the UK just broke its air pollution limit for the entire year.
Air pollution in the UK causes 40,000 premature deaths each year. Lots of things contribute to this crisis, but there’s one obvious place to start - the thousands of new diesel cars rolling onto our roads every day. Diesel cars were sold as a green choice, but carmakers lied about how much they pollute. The government admits there’s a problem, but they’re not doing nearly enough to fix it.
Helped by a crew of Greenpeace activists, Mary Poppins flew over Parliament, reminding politicians that their inaction is costing lives. Let’s make sure they can’t ignore this.
Sign the petition to tell Theresa May to cut diesel pollution - stop putting new diesel cars on the road, and accelerate the shift to cleaner, greener road transport.
