Google Vows to Fight U.S. Air Pollution While Censoring Data on Chinese Smog | Breitbart

Google plans to update its U.S. and Europe-based street view cars with pollution recording devices — but will also reportedly replace factual pollution data on its new censored search engine for China with statistics provided by the Chinese government.
Google has now partnered with California-based company Aclima, which builds Internet-connected air-quality sensors, and with the Environmental Defense Fund. Google will soon begin making their study data available to researchers linked to both groups.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has been particularly bullish about improving the quality of London's air during his tenure, and numerous small gains are happening across the capital all the time. Recently, he announced another 70-odd zero-emission buses would be joining the existing fleet next summer, as well as plans to expand London's ultra-low emission zone in which the most polluting vehicles must pay a daily charge to enter. With many green initiatives like air duct cleaning glendale ca in progress, though, it's important to be able to document their impact. That's where this hyperlocal monitoring project comes in -- by creating a detailed map of air quality across the city, you then have a baseline to compare future readings against.
