About this deal

For many years, Sadiq wasn't fully aware of the dangers posed by air pollution, nor its connection with climate change. Or at least we sincerely hope that democracy acts as a brake on some of the remedies proposed for climate change, which are clearly worse than the disease. More than a rhetorical flourish, he argues that framing environmental policies, such as measures to reduce air pollution, as issues of social justice is crucial to expose the misconception that these policies ignore disadvantaged communities.

Now, Sadiq draws on his experiences to reveal the seven ways environmental action gets blown off course – and how to get it back on track. Whether by building coalitions across the political spectrum, putting social justice at the heart of green politics, or showing that the climate crisis is a health crisis too, he offers a playbook for anyone – voter, activist or politician – who wants to win the argument on the environment.The World Health Organisation recently described air pollution as being ‘one of the greatest environmental risks to health. Editorial director Rowan Borchers said Breathe would be “both an intriguing inside account of life in City Hall, and a warm and practical guide to green politics”. It was Cop26 in Glasgow and I seemed to be having a heart attack," the book, which is published this week, says. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall).
