year air pollution claims upwards of 50,000 lives in the United States
alone, but this and other information too often fails to make its
way out of the pages of scientific journals and into the hands and
minds of ordinary citizens to whom it is vitally important. The Health
and Clean Air Newsletter is our attempt to make this information
available to readers ranging from the heads of parent teacher associations
to reporters, without sacrificing accuracy.

|A Citizen’s Guide to Air Pollution
outlines the effects of air pollution.
Air pollution affects all of us and the quality of our lives. Despite the
profound connection – and indeed the utter reliance – we all have to
the air around us, as a society we are astonishingly ignorant about the
importance of air quality.
In this authoritative book published by the David Suzuki Foundation,
renowned air pollution experts Dr. David Bates and Dr. Robert Caton
present effective measures for societies to reduce air pollution. They
explain that problems will persist until politicians, policy makers and
communities understand the issue. And they argue that sound judgment can
only be made within the context of an informed citizenry, which is one of
the reasons they have assembled this collection of intelligent essays.
A Citizen’s Guide to Air Pollution is not a light read, but it is an
important one for educators, policy makers and concerned citizens.
Written and edited by the Newsletter's co-editor, Dr. David Bates, and others, this comprehensive, authoritative and insightful book
is now available for a modest price from the David Suzuki Foundation,
