Bath Uni Lectures Swindon About Sustainability

In something really unremarkable, a scientist has pointed out something obvious to Swindonians.

Professor Geoffrey Hammond, of that old chestnut Bath University, has found that Swindon produces ten times the pollution that it can cope with. Exactly what 'cope with' means in terms of statistics is pretty vague. The surrounding Wiltshire countryside produces far less pollution. Probably because it's, you know, countryside.

Swindon Centric Says ; It doesn't take a scientist to tell Swindon that it produces more pollution than the surrounding countryside. But it certainly was interesting to be told this by a Bath University Professor, the same University that used to insist that building their own campus on green land on the edge of our town would be good for Swindon.

Where were you then Mr Hammond?
