Air pollution - ask a scientist

Air pollution - ask a scientist

Scare stories about air pollution regularly come across journalists’ desks and we get questions about them. Are diesel cars a danger to our health or should we worry more about coal-burning power plants? Is the air in our cities putting children’s health at risk?

As part of our Ask for Evidence campaign we're looking at the evidence behind transport policies and claims about air pollution. We've teamed up with a group of scientists at King’s College London to answer your questions.

Email your questions to us ( or tweet them at @senseaboutsci using #AirPollutionQ&A and we'll put them directly to the experts.

We'll publish the full Q&A on Thursday 9th April, but get your questions in early to make sure they get answered!
