London – Finally Going Green?
London is a town that has broken many records and most of these records are positive: it is a leading tourist attraction, has a high standard of living and offers many jobs. However, there is also a dark side of the coin, because London happens to be one of the most populated towns in the world. The European Union raised the alarm in 2012, when studies showed that London has the highest concentrations of nitrogen dioxide. The most polluted area, Grosvenor Place has a concentration of 152 micrograms and the least polluted one, “only” 100, but that is still twice as much as the EU limit of 50 micrograms per cubic metre.
