Councillor Adam Swersky, from the London Borough of Harrow, wrote this indictment of noise pollution in The New Statesman.

Finally, an elected official seems to understand that noise is a ubiquitous pollutant with adverse health impacts, and with special impacts on the less fortunate in society.

Since he sits on the borough council, he is in a position to do something about it, too.

American politicians, take note.

Dr. Daniel Fink is a leading noise activist based in the Los Angeles area. He serves on the board of the American Tinnitus Association, is the interim chair of Quiet Communities’s Health Advisory Council, and is the founding chair of The Quiet Coalition, an organization of science, health, and legal professionals concerned about the impacts of noise on health, environment, learning, productivity, and quality of life in America.
