Air Pollution Absolution

This time we talk about air pollution and how it affects human health. Find out what effect Fireworks Night has on the atmosphere, how long you've not been able to burn coal in London (its longer than you think) and why ozone isn't always a good thing. Also, an outside broadcast from Oxford Road in Manchester, Europe's busiest bus route, and an interview with Prof Tom Choularton about how the UK comprehensive spending review will affect Universities.

We received our second ever listener question: "Being as we breathe out carbon dioxide, do we contribute to global warming." Plus a plug for the next NW Royal MetSoc meeting which is about the newly opened Whitworth Observatory --- a new weather station in south Manchester with data available to the public.
