W.H.O.: Air Pollution Costs Britain's Economy £54 Billion Annual Deficit
LONDON - The World Health Organization has warned Britain that the air pollution pandemic costs it's economy over £54 billion annually.
Yet the British government has complete failed now to protect the economy and the lives of it's people. According to the latest MP report 50,000 people are killed each year in Britain from the ongoing and murderously rampant Air Pollution Pandemic. This despite the British Supreme Court, in April 2015, unanimously ruling and demanding that the "government, whatever its political complexion, should be left in no doubt as to the need for immediate action."
Something is terribly wrong and rotten in the state of Britain. The state has failed to carry and communicate the message of a clear emergency situation.
Most tragically, the 50,000 are murdered in Britain each year, who could have been saved, if politicians had supported the readily available alternatives of clean energies already available.
Today technological alternatives exist to end all fossil fuel emissions in record time. One of the biggest challenges for new clean energy technology is raising awareness of their products. However, the killer fossil fuel products dominate media and advertising space. How can the clean energy products that would save more lives in Britain ever before, compete in this medieval marketing environment?
Why do not politicians ban the advertising of automobile companies, as they had done of tobacco products since the 1960s?
This is a most precarious position for British democracy. Perhaps, the one defence politicians can apply, is that they are not of sound mind, otherwise they are under now in criminal and flagrant disregard of national Supreme Court orders in regards to the air pollution pandemic, that has lead to more fatalities than civilians deaths from World War II.
Not only would emergency action to convert the nation to clean energy cut £54 billion in costs annually in Britain, it would also serve to end dependence on energy and oil imports.
Currently Britain imports 54% of it's energy needs, and spends over £40 billion annually on oil imports, risking the lives of it's armed forces personnel to secure energy needs while in proxy funding fundamentalist terrorist groups.
This absolute state of madness by parliament is further exemplified by it pledging £2.5 billion of taxpayer money to fight malaria abroad in 2016. There were only 6 cases of malaria deaths in Britain in 2015. By contrast £2.5 billion invested in GB, would have replaced all public buses electric and hydrogen, to zero emissions saving thousands of lives in GB, annually and set an example to the rest the world, where over 7 million people are killed each year from the air pollution pandemic, costing the global economy £4 trillion annually. This figure is far in excess of deaths from malaria, TB, and HIV/AIDS combined. In 2015 there were 429,000 deaths from malaria and 1.1 million from AIDS.
Why then despite all this, does the mass killer Air Pollution Pandemic that is desecrating the economy remain so ignored?
