Human Rights Act 1998


Part I The Convention – Rights and Freedoms    Article 2 Right to life

Pp55.6 para 7.5.28  “It is important to note that an increased risk of mortality and morbidity due to elevated PM10 (particulates) exposure is small and limited to a fraction of a population which is already in poor health. As such, the term DBF (Deaths Brought Forward) does not constitute new/additional deaths but a reduction in life expectancy for those whose health is already seriously compromised.”

In other words, they are seriously ill already, so it doesn’t matter. 

“In order to convert Deaths Brought Forward (DBF) in life expectancy, the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollution provided an estimate of an average two to six month loss of life expectancy per Death Brought Forward, in its 2001 report.”

The mortality attributable to particulate air pollution in Derby is 131 deaths per annum and for the County of Derbyshire 402 deaths per annum.…H
