Clearing the Air by
Call Number: TD883 .S565 2019
Publication Date: 2019
Air pollution has become the world's greatest environmental health risk, and science is only beginning to reveal its wide-ranging effects. Globally, 19,000 people die each day from air pollution, killing more than HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and car accidents combined. What happened to the air we breathe? Sustainability journalist Tim Smedley has travelled the world to try and find the answer, visiting cities at the forefront of the fight against air pollution, including Delhi, Beijing, London and Paris. With insights from the scientists and politicians leading the battle against it, and people whose lives have been affected by it, Clearing the Air tells the full story of air pollution for the first time: what it is, which pollutants are harmful, where they come from and most importantly what we can do about them. Air pollution is a problem that can be solved. The stories uncovered on this journey show us how. (From the publisher).

"Air pollution prematurely kills seven million people every year, including more than one hundred thousand Americans. It is strongly linked to strokes, heart attacks, many kinds of cancer, dementia, and premature birth, among other ailments. In Choked, Beth Gardiner travels the world to tell the story of this modern-day plague, taking readers from the halls of power in Washington and the diesel-fogged London streets she walks with her daughter to Poland's coal heartland and India's gasping capital. In a gripping narrative that's alive with powerful voices and personalities, she exposes the political decisions and economic forces that have kept so many of us breathing dirty air. This is a moving, up-close look at the human toll, where we meet the scientists who have transformed our understanding of pollution's effects on the body and the ordinary people fighting for a cleaner future."-- Dust jacket

Lessons from the Clean Air Act: Building Durability and Adaptability into U.S. Climate and Energy Policy by
Call Number: KF3812 .L47 2019
Publication Date: 2019
Climate and energy policy needs to be durable and flexible to be successful, but these two concepts often seem to be in opposition. One venerable institution where both ideas are apparent is the Clean Air Act, first passed by the United States Congress in 1963, with amendments in 1970 and 1990. The Act is a living institution that has been hugely successful in improving the environment. It has programs that reach across the entire economy, regulating various sectors and pollutants in different ways. This illuminating book examines these successes - and failures - with the aim to offer lessons for future climate and energy policymaking in the US at the federal and state level. It provides critical information to legislators, regulators, and scholars interested in understanding environmental policymaking"-- Provided by publisher
"In designing public policy, analysts often focus on criteria like efficiency and distributional fairness. These are important attributes of good policy design and in the climate and energy context we have seen significant attention paid to them. Our focus in this book is, nevertheless, different. Our claim is that, despite the recent pause in U.S. efforts to reduce emissions, the U.S. will need to return to aggressively regulating its greenhouse gas emissions. And in doing so, we will need well-designed energy policy that will need not only to be efficient and fair but also to be durable in order to achieve substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century. Most centrally, we will need durable energy policy in order to motivate the substantial private sector investment in long-lived energy infrastructure that will be necessary to transform our energy system
