Description:
Air pollution has become the world's single biggest environmental health risk, and science has only recently begun to reveal its wide-ranging effects. 'Clearing the Air' tells for the first time the full story of air pollution: what it is, which pollutants are harmful, where they come from and - most importantly - what we can do about them. It is time to find out what's happened to the air we breathe. Air pollution is a problem that can be solved. This volume carries an empowering message: the overwhelming majority of air pollutants are local, short-lived, and can be stopped at source; the benefits to health can be instant and dramatic. The stories uncovered on Tim's journey show how the fightback against air pollution can and does work. We can all play a part to clear our air.
