Globally, the last two decades have seen a phenomenal increase in the level of air pollution. Air pollution is responsible for 72% of the 9 million deaths per year from all types of pollution. Southeast Asia has the highest number of pollution-related deaths. In this talk, Prof. Tabarrok will present an overview of recent studies on air pollution, emphasising more credible research designs and the wide variety of ways in which it has subtler and worse effects than previously thought.
