When air pollution alerts are sent out, air quality experts warn that it could mean bad news for the people of Northern Ireland.
The warning comes as air quality in Northern Ireland continues to worsen after the UK government imposed stricter measures on vehicles, buildings and public transport on the second anniversary of the worst pollution outbreak in living memory.
The government announced that vehicles will have to be equipped with pollution-control devices by January next year, including fog lights and air filters.
The National Air Quality Strategy also announced it would be raising emissions standards on the largest single sectors of the economy by 20 per cent.
The strategy also aims to improve air quality by 2020.
The UK government says it is targeting five million fewer cars and 1.5 million fewer vans in the next five years, and that it will also improve air pollution controls on roads and other public transport.
The air quality warning is for air pollution levels in the regions of Northern England and Wales, Scotland, and parts of the West Midlands.
In the north, it is issued for the cities of London, Manchester and Liverpool.
The alert is for high levels of PM2.5 particulate matter, or fine particles.
In Northern Ireland, it means the level of PM10, the smallest of the pollutants that cause the most health problems.
The level of air pollution in Northern Irish areas is typically very low compared to other parts of England, but it is still alarming.
“People are already being affected, and the health effects are very serious,” said Dr Peter Williams, an adviser to the NI Air Quality Action Group.
“The air quality is worsening.
It is also increasing.
The worst case scenario is people breathing more and developing lung cancer.”
We are very concerned that the situation in Northern England is going to worsen in the coming weeks,” he said.
These are people that are working in jobs that they love, who are earning decent wages and they’re being exposed to air pollution, and it’s very worrying,” he added. “
We know that some of the people we have got working in the emergency department, they’ve been hit hard, and they’ve also been very concerned about the poor health status of their families, their pets, and their children.”
These are people that are working in jobs that they love, who are earning decent wages and they’re being exposed to air pollution, and it’s very worrying,” he added.
A number of local councils in the south of the county have also been affected.
“It is certainly a concern that we have to take into account when air quality monitoring is being carried out.” “
This is a very bad combination of weather conditions and conditions in the South, and we are still waiting to see if the weather conditions will improve before we can make any recommendations to Northern Ireland,” he told the Irish Times.
“It is certainly a concern that we have to take into account when air quality monitoring is being carried out.”
People in the UK were also warned that there were more severe air pollution warnings due to the government’s action in the Northern Ireland area.
The latest air quality warnings were issued for levels of nitrogen dioxide, which is a pollutant from coal-fired power plants.
In some parts of London and other areas, people are already suffering respiratory problems.
Dr Chris Evans, the UK’s chief air quality officer, said the air quality was expected to worsen further.
“There’s a clear trend to air quality deterioration over the next few weeks and a longer-term trend to increased air pollution which has been going on for a long time,” he was quoted as saying by the Times.
He added: “We have seen a dramatic increase in air pollution over the past two years, particularly in the North.”
The air is so bad we have had to have a very strong alert that’s been issued for a number of weeks.
“That alert is going on, and our monitoring teams are working hard to make sure that air quality stays safe.”
The air pollution advisory is issued when PM2-40 levels reach levels higher than 50 micrograms per cubic metre, which in the north of England is considered unhealthy for workers, as well as for the elderly and those with chronic respiratory conditions.
In terms of the health impacts, air pollution is a major contributor to respiratory disease and cardiovascular disease.
“You need to get a very clear picture of how you’re going to treat the people in your community,” Dr Evans said.
“How do you put people out of their homes?
Do you put them into nursing homes?
The situation is very complex.” “
There is no easy answer.
The situation is very complex.”
Air quality experts also warned people in Northern Europe are at risk from a combination of pollutants.
Air pollution from coal burning is a key contributor to air pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide and particulate particles.
It has been blamed for triggering asthma attacks, heart attacks, and other conditions, including the development of a rare lung disease known as COPD.
In England, coal burning accounts for just 1.3 per cent of the
