On Monday's Backchat, air pollution. Is it getting better, and if so, how fast? An environmental advocacy group has proposed a new set of 5-year air quality objectives up to 2025, and revised the targets of the concentration limits for key pollutants. Is this enough? Is the Government setting low targets so that development projects won't be impeded? Why are ozone levels on the rise? What measures could be formulated to 'clean' the air? After 9.20, CSSA re-worked.
