DescriptionThe UK Government provides daily air pollution forecasts for vulnerable people. Unfortunately, for most people the cost of avoiding air pollution seems to be larger than the perceived benefits, resulting in a muted response to air pollution warnings – that’s the conclusion of research by Dr Katharina Janke of the University of Lancaster and CMPO, University of Bristol.
