"The media wants sources of #revenue apart from what they are getting from #government #ads and lobbies."
Improving Air Quality Communications - Insights by @ravinarajkohli (3/17)

"They (media) have approached us time and time again, and asked if there are any available #funds and why there isn't any #philanthropic money coming for the environment?"

❗️@NorfolkCC & @NorwichCC are consulting on proposed changes to #Norwich streets. We urge all our supporters to respond - the deadline's tomorrow! Here's most of our response - feel free to steal any of our points (long thread!) norfolk.citizenspace.com/consultation/h… 1/n
"🖊 We strongly support the proposed changes to St Benedict’s Street, Exchange Street, and to the timings of various crossing points. 2/n
However - although we are aware that more changes are still to be announced - we are V. disappointed by the lack of ambition compared to what other UK Transport Authorities are doing & compared to what Transport Sec @grantshapps & @transportgovuk have called for. 3/n

Further to this #popup #cycling #sustainability #zerocarbon #worldcyclingday might appear counter-intuitive that Manchester is not supportive of pop up cycle lanes. So a thread👇🚲🚴🚴‍♀️
Pop up cycle lanes have traction with the press and looks like they are also popular with (commuter) cyclists. Light segregation schemes are becoming increasingly popular in other cities on the back of the Covid19 pandemic #Cycling #Manchester
Sure they offer value for money and with being temporary, they also offer adaptability. Estimated cost of constructing a kerb-separated cycle track in central London is
approximately £700,000 per km, compared to around £60,000 per km for light segregation itf-oecd.org/sites/default/…

🆕📰Now finally out as @iza_bonn DP:

My paper on the impact of indoor #airquality on cognitive performance of #chess players! 🏭♟️ (with @KunnSteffen @umsbe & #JuanPalacios @MIT)

Paper here: ftp.iza.org/dp12632.pdf

Summary 👇🏻(1/N)
We know that #airpollution is really bad for your #health.

Exposure to poor air quality may have harmful impacts on the 🧠.

Question: What are consequences for performance in complex cognitive tasks? (2/N)
We study the effect of air quality on cognitive performance using data from #chess tournaments. Why chess? ♟️

Because it's a complex, cognitively demanding task with strong incentives, involving strategic decision making under time pressure. (3/N)

With #AirQuality #AirPollution at unhealthy levels in the #BayArea region I thought it might be helpful to outline what it means, why you should care, and some tips on what you should be doing.👇👇👇
Fine particulate matter or “PM2.5” are tiny particles suspended in the air that much smaller than the width of a human hair. When you breathe these particles enter your respiratory tract and end up in your lungs.
These last California wildfires have burned homes/buildings, as well as vegetation. That means the PM2.5 in the air most likely contains little bits of aerosolized electronics, rubber, plastic, asbestos, etc. That's what you could be breathing in. Nasty stuff!

As a battle looms ahead, let’s take a look back at where we’ve been & why #CleanCarStandards are so important.

Once upon a time, CA’s fight for #cleanercars emerged from a thick layer of yellowish gray #smog with a metallic taste & eye-stinging character...
When Governor Ronald Reagan signed the law creating CARB in 1968, California had been fighting the #smog monster for over 20 years with regulations to clean up tailpipe pollution
Governor Reagan fought hard to protect CA’s authority to set its own #cleanercarstandards under the newly passed #CleanAirAct, signed by President Nixon a few years after LA’s #smog made the cover of Time Magazine

#AirPollution is considered the most important environmental risk causing 1 in 8 premature deaths. That counts 6.5 million per year.
At least 80% of the world population is exposed to dangerous levels of air pollution. Lack of #AirQuality data could cause underestimations
