  • P robably the best introduction to our book is the conclusion of another book. The other book is Something New Under the Sunby historian J. R. McNeill.1 McNeill argues that the Preacher in Ecclesiastes remains mostly but not completely right—there is indeed “nothing new under the sun” in the realm of vanity and wickedness.

And it greatly amplifies the consequences of vanity and wickedness.

However, advances in the science of epidemiology suggest that even air that would until recently have been considered ‘clean’ may contain pollutants that are hazardous to people’s health.
