David Smith founder of Little Ninja UK is our guest speaker with information about idling, air pollution and what we can do about it.
UK children regularly exposed to illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide have 5%-14% reduced lung volume by the time they are 8-9 years old. Children are exposed to five times as much air pollution during the school run than at any time during the day. Diesel engine exhaust is carcinogenic group 1 and like tobacco smoke it increases the risk of lung cancer. Around 40% of vehicles in the UK are diesel and an idling vehicle produces almost twice the exhaust emissions as a moving vehicle.
Join us and listen to David & Eli’s inspiring story and find out what we can do to protect ourselves, our children and our planet from this unnecessary and harmful burning of fossil fuel.
