How is it that almost all UK major cities and a big chunk of towns are presently breaking pollution levels set by our own government?
Simply put its different kinds of pollutants. International action on climate change centred around cutting greenhouse gases. That has been happening but its the other gases that cause localised pollution issues. It's not just one problem happening. Climate change plus other pollutants such as particulates, NOx, SOx, etc. Switching to n diesel to cut carbon emissions led to increased pollution in cities from increased diesel. Of course the switch to diesel was also partly a pritectionist policy to protect European motor industry from Japanese motor industry.
Of course you would probably know this better than me.
