Air Pollution SMS Alerts

I wish we didn't need to have pollution alerts in London, but sending them straight to your mobile via text message seems like a very sensible solution. And what's more, this isn't a premium rate service, it's just a service, and it's free.

The website is pretty thorough too - worth a look.

  2. Try living in L.A.
    You get smog warnings everwhere displayed digitally around the city.

  3. he program is intended to put useful satellite information about Earth's environment in the hands of citizens. The initial focus was on mapping land use and agriculture, but the ESA has now come up with an altogether different application.YourAir is a project providing air quality forecasts in great geographic detail, down to the street level. It currently serves London as a prototype, but if successful, will be expanded to other European cities. Forecasts are made for particulate, nitrogen dioxide, and ozone pollution. Last month, the service added a new feature: pollution warnings sent via SMS to mobile phones.

  4. Just a clarification: These type of services have been around for some years now in various European cities. Major contribution came from a couple of EU-supported projects, named APNEE and APNEE-TU (www.apnee.org). Such services are now in place in Norway, France, Greece, just to name some of the application sites. In U.K. there is at least one more similar service that I know of (www.airalert.info) operating for at least 3 years now...
