ULEZ Extension: Damning New Report Shatters 'Scientific' Claims Made By London Mayor Khan
Read also this first supplement to the report, which shows that Khan and his cabinet appear not to understand what the scientific reports they have commissioned tell them. London Deputy Mayor for Transport and Energy Shirley Rodrigues’s replies to critics of ULEZ falsely states the ‘science’ is unequivocal and that criticisms are ‘pure science denial’, whereas there is intense scientific debate about the risks of air pollution exposure in the very literature that she cites as an authority
Our second supplement shows that data that the Mayor and TfL use to evaluate the success of the ULEZ and its expansion is based on unreliable data. For much of the pre-ULEZ period, roadside air quality in Central London was being measured by just one or two monitoring stations giving a false impression of extremely high levels of air pollution. Yet this dodgy data is used to represent the entire area, and to produce a favourable analysis of ULEZ policies.
