Wrote letter to ‪Reading Chronicle in response to letter from a man who doesn't "give a fig" about the environment

Dear Editor,
Mr. Eoin may not “give a fig” about the environment (Chronicle letters 8th Oct) but I hope that he cares about the air we breathe.
Government figures show that nitrogen dioxide, the pollutant subject to VW’s defeat device, contributes to 23,500 deaths per year in Britain. Particulates, the oily soot produced by diesels, contributes to another 29,000 deaths. These account for almost one in ten of all deaths in the UK.
We all live in, and affect, “the environment”. Everything that we do to it affects everyone.
