ABSTRACT
The article talks about the pollution from the demolition of old buildings which is believed to hamper the British government's attempts to tackle global warming. It is reported that most insulation foam used in building panels before 2004 contained chlorofluorocarbons or hydrochlorofluorocarbons. These chemicals escape into the environment when buildings are knocked down and act as powerful greenhouse gases to disrupt the climate.
