Air pollution. Why we fail to learn the lessons of history

Longhurst, James

Authors



Abstract

This presentation will explore contemporary issues of air pollution through the lens provided by history. It will present a perspective drawn from an analysis of historical, and mostly failed, attempts to manage air pollution from classical times until today. It will ask the question why have we not learnt from the lesson history provides? It will do so with the benefit of 2020 hindsight!
