    周二(2月14日),BBC英文网站刊登了一篇名为《Tube 'higher than driving' for air pollution, study finds》的文章,介绍了英国萨里大学的一项关于不同交通方式的通勤者在空气污染中的暴露风险的研究。

    研究发现,地铁乘客所接触的空气污染(PM10)是小汽车驾驶员的8倍,常规公交乘客是小汽车驾驶员的5倍,但是小汽车排放的污染物比在地铁里发现的污染物更加有害。

    英媒:搭乘公共交通比开车接触更多的空气污染

    原文如下:

    Travelling on the Underground exposes commuters to much air pollution as those who drive to work, a university study has found.

    Monitors worn by commuters found those who travelled on the Tube were exposed to 68mg of harmful pollutant PM10, whereas car drivers had 8.2mg.

    The University of Surrey study found when train windows were open, commuters were exposed to more pollutants.

    Drivers were not as exposed because cars filter the pollutants out.

    But although drivers are not exposed to as many pollutants, the types given out by cars are more harmful than the ones found on the Underground.

    'Environmental injustice'

    The study found PM levels were highest on trains on the Victoria and Northern lines, because they all had their windows open, heightening the effect of pollutants when going through tunnels.

    The study did not include people who commute on foot or cycle.

    The study also found:

    • Passengers on the District Line in trains with closed windows were exposed to far lower concentrations of PM than those travelling on trains with open windows on the same line
    • Bus commuters were exposed to an average of 38mg of PM10, roughly half as much as Tube passengers but five times as much as cars
    • The morning commute has more pollutants than the afternoon and evening journeys
    • Although car drivers were the least exposed, they caused the most pollutants.

    Dr Prashant Kumar, who led the study, said: "We found that there is definitely an element of environmental injustice among those commuting in London, with those who create the most pollution having the least exposure to it.

    "The relatively new airtight trains with closed windows showed a significant difference to the levels of particles people are exposed to over time, suggesting that operators should consider this aspect during any upgrade of Underground trains, along with the ways to improve ventilation in underground tunnels."
