Making money from pollution

Have your say

Is it too much to ask politicians to think before they act?

Pollution in Sheffield is at a high level. What are the powers to be doing? They’re going to charge lorries/buses for exceeding pollution levels.

In itself will that have a big difference on pollution?

How can it be that by putting a charge on vehicles it will bring down pollution? All it will do is put a charge on all our goods and bus fares will go up.

Who will win? The powers that be who get the revenue we pay. As pollution gets worse, the EU steps in and the council gladly pays out our money and the pollution never gets solved.

This is what every government does... not solve it, just take more money from us.
