The Pigeon In the Coal Mine

Aimed at "making the invisible visible" - thus raising awareness of air pollution levels that can rival Beijing's - a troupe of formerly unemployed, perennially maligned pigeons have just finished a three-day trial flight of the newly created Pigeon Air Patrol, whereby the birds monitor London's air quality via teeny backpack sensors that can relay reports of pollution levels to Twitter. It's hard to avoid Tweet puns here, but we're trying.
