Air pollution is currently the fourth highest cause of deaths worldwide. They equated the impact of air pollution to losing a year's worth of education. For those aged over 60, this could be the equivalent of several years of lost education. Governments really need to take concrete measures to reduce air pollution.

I ordered this book for use in my chemistry classroom. I cover environmental chemistry, and this book covers almost all of the beginning-level air chemistry and environmental meteorology that I could ask for. It has heat islands, ground-level pollution, weather, and much more. Great as a resource book!

Into Thin Air is a cautionary and informative piece on air pollution in our world. Or at least that’s how it’s advertised on the cover. I picked this up to read along with an ethnography project on environmentally conscious people. Although it was not my first choice, it was about the environmental effects of air pollution so it seemed to fit decently. I was sorely disappointed though. The main topic of the book seemed to be completely missing according to how the cover advertised it. The main focus of the book is actually the history of meteorology rather than the problems with air pollution. The author did a fantastic job explaining how the science of weather prediction reached it’s current accuracy but unfortunately there is not much in the name of pollution science in the book. The chemistry seemed deeply lacking as well. In the first few pages during the explanation of the makeup of the atmosphere (and the only real reference to the environmental effects of pollution) the author cites ammonia as NH2 rather than NH3. This could easily be a typo but still it should have been edited out in the publishing process. That mistake unfortunately set the tone of the rest of the book for me. I was more reluctant to trust the science in the book. Had the focus of this book been meteorology rather than air pollution it would have been much better. Unfortunately this was not true.
