P. R. Douville[What's in the Air] moves easily from the environmental view to the industrial or economic view without espousing either, and it disucsses air pollution sources such as volcanoes, tornadoes, auto emissions, industrial emissions, etc., in significant detail despite its size. It covers smog history (natural and man-made), regulations, and mechanisms of formation in some detail, and it contains a very good discussion of both sides of the ozone depletion problem. It ends with a chapter on the possible solutions to air pollution problems and the difficulties encountered with each of these proposed solutions....A well written treatise. The authors accomplish their objectives to avoid moral judgments and stay away from taking political positions; they have produced a remarkably complete short work on air pollution. Useful glossary. All levels.
