LONDON’S DEADLY FOG
Back in 1952, CO was the least of London’s 2 worries. Weather plus pollution combined to create a fog... a fog that could kill.
For people in London, “pea soup” smog has been a part of life for centuries. So, it was no surprise, when yellowish black smoke shrouded the city for an entire week in December 1952. The citizens did not realise the gravity of the situation, until it became difficult to obtain enough coffins and flowers.
