Description (excerpt):

Data shows that fine particulate air pollution remains the greatest external threat to public health. Yet, throughout history countries like the United States, Europe, Japan, and, most recently, China have been able to significantly reduce air pollution thanks to a persistent, public call for change followed by strong policies. At the foundation of those actions were common elements: political will and resources, both human and financial, that reinforced each other. When the public and policymakers have these tools, action becomes much more likely.
