The alarmist foundation for ULEZ expansion has disintegrated.
Read the new Together Declaration & Climate Debate UK report by Ben Pile demonstrating that neither the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) nor the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) find evidence of a causal link between air pollution and mortality.
Despite Khan claiming that 4,000 Londoners die each year, both UKHSA and COMEAP explicitly advise against framing the potential mortality risk associated with air pollution exposure in terms of deaths because it is untrue and unscientific.
This sends a lightning bolt through Sadiq Khan’s irresponsible and dishonest claims that ULEZ expansion would ‘save lives’ – seemingly the only argument ‘left in the locker’ given the public, London boroughs, and even London Labour MPs, are against this scheme. When the science and economics of anti-car policies are fully considered, the evidence suggests they are very likely to do far more harm than good.
