Synopsis: What's in the Air is written by a scientist for the layperson. Using non-technical terms, the author describes the chemical makeup of air and explains the meteorology and geography that influence the atmosphere. The book stresses the importance of knowledge and vigilance over the most essential life-supporting substance on earth: the air we breathe. This is a book for all ages from junior high school students to adult readers.

From the Back Cover: Here are some of the fascinating facts about air pollution detailed in this book: Man-made air pollution began when mankind first discovered how to harness fire. Early air pollution regulations were attempted in 13th century London when dense coal smoke caused massive illness and death. In 1948 nearly half of the population of Donora, Pennsylvania became ill from factory fumes. In 1952 over 4,000 people died in a disastrous smog attack in London. In 1984 insecticide gas escaped from a factory in Bhopal, India causing at least 3,300 immediate deaths and 20,000 permanent injuries. Earthquakes and tornadoes stir up toxic materials that can cause illness and death. Natural asphalt can emit lethal fumes through fissures in rocks. The earliest account of this was in 900 B.C. Toxic gases from volcanic eruptions have changed the earth's climate, causing the extinction of many species of plants and animals. In nearly all air pollution episodes, weather and geography play a major part.
