'This book is an authoritative but accessible synthesis of environmental pollution as a major cause of environmental change ... ...a very useful book that addresses many of the issues covered by atmospheric pollution in a very accessible way... I found this book as complete and informative as possible and of utmost importance to interested readers, whatever their background or motivations.'
