“Air pollution is a serious problem that we all have the power to solve. Tim Smedley’s book, Clearing the Air, shows how the fightback against air pollution works. Tim’s book is action-packed and his global journey of discovery uncovers the real heroes who are taking a stand and fighting for their right to breathe clean air. We can all be heroes when it comes to campaigning for clear air. Read this book and join the effort to terminate pollution.” 

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, 38th Governor of California

“Clearing the Air sets out in simple terms the monumental damage that dirty air is causing to us and our environment. It also gives us the remarkably simple, logical solutions that need embracing across the world. Compulsory reading." 

CHRIS BOARDMAN, Olympic Gold Medallist and Greater Manchester’s Cycling and Walking Commissioner

‘There are scientific details packed between the covers of this
personal account – atmospheric chemistry, automotive
engineering, health effects and more. The technical
details are woven seamlessly into the story. It left me with
a growing feeling of hope: people around the world are
demanding breathable air!’
MARY NICHOLS, Chair of the California Air Resources Board (CARB)

‘What Tim does so well is to articulate a simple truth that
ultimately leaves you with hope: it doesn’t have to be this
way. Air pollution is a man-made problem and Clearing
the Air sets out the simple steps that governments and
individuals must take to ensure that everyone can breathe
clean air. Read it and take action!’

"A thoughtful, worthwhile book that fulfils the important role of observing air pollution across widespread regions of the world. China is not the first country to experience the environmental impacts of industrialization, and it will not be the last."

MA JUN, Director of the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs, Beijing, China
