Walks along the ‘lost’ river Effra 25 & 30 Sept

Part of the Lambeth Heritage Festival

 

The Effra vanished underground 150 years back, leaving just a few legends and a nagging fascination. Once the willow-fringed haunt of eels and herons, it had beentransformed by unregulated suburban development from asmall river into a large sewer, until finally it was covered over. Writer and archivist Jon Newman,discusses and reads from his new book which tells its story from geology through social,environmental and engineering history to its enduring mythic presence today.

Air pollution in London is deadly – and it kills indiscriminately!

Should those investing in London’s pollution hot spots worry?

This article is from the Exponential Investor (who are sending me their emails ever since I read one of their online articles warning property investors not to invest in luxury high rises at Nine Elms on the Southbank).  This article points out that air pollution doesn’t kill indiscriminately but hits disproportionally hard those who traditionally live in the most polluted areas around Central London. By inverting this observation it could be said that by driving these populations out of London through ‘regeneration’ their place in the pollution deaths statistics will increasingly be taken by the super-rich instead. Irony or what?
