YourAir SMS pollution alerts


Ah the streets of London, no place like them, makes you just want to suck up all that atmosphere… Or rather you don’t because apparently the pollution has become so bad that the YourAir programme will send out SMS alerts to people with asthma, breathing disorders and anyone not safely tucked behind a cigarette filter with a street-by-street coverage guide to let them know when its safe to step outside sans gasmask. It’s more alarming that this kind of alert is actually necessary, but look at the pic: is it a satellite view of London or is it really the inside of the average resident’s lung?
