Air Quality - should we have achieved more?

Publication date:
April 2013
This journal summarises the state of the air quality profession and asks the question "should we have achieved more". Broadly speaking, the articles have three themes: a retrospective showing how we have reached the current situation, a review of topical issues and an attempt to look to the future. The journal concludes with some opinions on why the general public are not more vocal about air quality issues.
