On this edition of Your Call, we continue our weeklong series on the climate crisis with Beth Gardiner, author of Choked: Life and Breath in the Age of Air Pollution.
Today, only five percent of the population breathe truly healthful air. Air pollution prematurely kills nine million people a year, including 100,000 Americans. In her new book, Gardiner traveled the globe to find out how can we stop the forces causing air pollution and build a cleaner, healthier future for all.
