“LONDON AIR-MORE DANGEROUS THAN AFTERMATH OF A-BOMB!” – View Below -
It’s ‘4Billion’ – OF TOXINS – ‘DOWN THE DRAIN’ – 2007 April 23:
Four Billion Items Of Chemical Pollution Are Flushed Into Britain’s Water System Each Week It Was Claimed Yesterday. The Chemicals Are Contained In Household Products Such AS SHAMPOO And Washing UP Liquid.
The Average Household Uses 18 Toiletries And Cleaning Products A Week Each Containing TEN Synthetic Chemicals In The Study Of 2,000 Adults By Elave A Chemicals-safe Skincare Brand. Just as people are being asked to cut their ‘carbon footprint’ to save the environment, they are now being asked to reduce their ‘toxic splashing’ of water.
Climate Change IS A Reality AND The Threat IS Serious. Everyone IS Likely To See Increases IN Temperature. Water AS A Key Concern WITH Likely Changes In Availability And The GLOBAL Water Cycle.
There’ll be big water reductions in Southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East making life more difficult for agriculture and people.
This could lead to conflict. We’re also looking at changes in pests and diseases- such as malaria- moving north.
The Amazon basin is likely to dry out which would have a massive ecological impact. In Britain we’re likely to see, in the next 80 years, temperatures increases of up to five degrees Celsius.
The most severe impact will be in weather extremes.
‘The 2003 heat wave that killed tens of thousands of people? By 2050, those heat waves will probably be normal.’ End of the world?
“It’s very likely climate change will be a global disaster. The next 30 or 40 years will bring very significant changes.”
‘London Air-More Dangerous Than Aftermath Of A-Bomb’ – 2007 April: H&H Series
Breathing polluted London air is potentially worse than being exposed to the radioactive consequences of an atomic bomb, new research revealed last week. The health of Londoners is at greater risk than that of survivors of the Chernobyl nuclear plant explosion, according to findings published in the Bio-Med Central Journal of Public Health.
Millions were exposed to potentially dangerous levels of radiation when the former Soviet plant exploded in 1986. But these latest findings claim the consequences suffered by survivors of the blast could be much less damaging than previously thought. Survivors might expect their lives to be shortened be an average of 2.6 years – or a one per cent increase in mortality rates in a given population.
‘But the increased risk of dying from adverse effects of air pollution in central London, compared with the cleaner air of Inverness is 2.8 per cent.’
Writing in the journal, Jim Smith, a scientist at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, said: ‘The immediate effects of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs led to approximately 210,000 deaths.’
However radiation exposures experienced by the most exposed group of survivors led to an average loss of life expectancy significantly lower than that caused by severe obesity or active smoking.
He did conclude at a later briefing that his findings were limited as they excluded certain social and lifestyle factors.
Two weeks ago the Marylebone Express reported on the councils 25 point plan to cut air pollution in Marylebone. Cllr Alan Bradley said:- ‘The council is revising its air quality strategy this year and is considering a range of measures.’
2011 June: Songbirds-Slaughter; Westminster Council – Anything achieved?
Todate – ‘Nothing has been found out about this from Westminster Council…’
Little Wrens weigh same as £1 coin. Rich russet plumage tiny flicked cocked tail.
Over eyes – A cream Stripe.
Male constructs several globe-shaped nests of grass leaves moss in holes, walls, trees. Uses nest boxes. Female then chooses nest and lines with her feathers.
“One of Britains smallest songbirds but what they lack in size make up for in energy and noise-swivelling bobbing singing their tiny little hearts out.”
Wrens tremble as they put everything into their ‘round the clock’ hearty buzzy tuneful clear song ending in a ‘trill.’
Help Wrens: Short delicate bills eat beetles flies spiders. Ground feeders risk killing by cats rats.
Use ‘steep-sided worm-feeders.’ Feed mealworms fruit soft bill mixes containing insects cereals.
