Air pollution past, present and future

Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, W1J 0BA

Speakers: Professor Alastair Lewis

Join Professor Alastair Lewis as he examines the history of pollution, why chemical lessons learnt from past events are not always applicable to solving modern day problems, and how our generally improving health leaves us more vulnerable to pollution.

The negative impacts of air pollution on public health can be traced back thousands of years, and have been frequently associated with periods of economic expansion. From sulfurous fogs in London, through Californian smogs of the 70's and the present problems in China, it seems impossible to drive rapid growth and wealth without debilitating environmental consequences. Despite decades of investment in clean technologies many cities, including London, suffer health impacts of air pollution that are as severe as ever.

The lecture is FREE and open to the general public and members. Online booking is required.
