Now, Sadiq draws on his experiences to reveal the seven ways environmental action gets blown off course – and how to get it back on track. Khan picks up this point in his book and notes that, ‘The nine million early deaths it causes each year makes air pollution a bigger killer than tobacco smoking. To kick off my summer, I’m reading Mark Fisher’s Ghosts of My Life: Writings on Depression, Hauntology and Lost Futures. For many of us, the summer holidays offer a perfect opportunity to catch up on some reading, whether it’s taking a trashy thriller to flick through by the pool or lugging a weighty historic tome to a pavement cafe. Air is made up of about 78 per cent nitrogen, 21 per cent oxygen, and small amounts of other gases like carbon dioxide, helium and hydrogen.

This combination of factors suggests a closer contest next time, in which Khan’s ability to persuade Green voters not to split the left vote but to back him from the outset could be a decisive factor in determining the outcome. Since becoming Mayor of London in 2016, he has declared a climate emergency, introduced the world’s first Ultra-Low Emission Zone, and turned London into the first-ever ‘National Park City’. Excellent insight into the challenges of tackling the climate emergency at a local level against a backdrop of national government apathy.

But it’s Rosamund, the mum of Ella Kissi-Debrah – a nine-year-old girl who became the first person in the UK to have “air pollution” recorded as a cause of death on her death certificate – who has the biggest impact, refocusing Khan to prioritise the climate agenda.

Although governments across the world are fond of setting targets, the policies to hit them often fail to materialise.

While Khan outlines the problems associated with air pollution, the book also fails to provide any solutions to tackle these issues. If you’re living in a more deprived area, you’re much more likely to experience the negative effects of air pollution. Voter ID reforms are likely to significantly reduce the turnout of BAME voters who Khan has been able to count on in the past (around 2.He has said his asthma is down to breathing polluted London air, and it was his diagnosis that drove his interest in addressing air pollution and climate change. It is not known what caused him to suddenly fall unwell, but medical experts have confirmed that the symptoms and aftermath were consistent with a minor heart attack, the Evening Standard reported. Khan fails to mention that two London borough councils, Redbridge and Harrow (both then under Labour control) removed their Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs). He’s angry that Thatcherite cuts closed his dad’s bus garage (the revelation of his dad being a bus driver does surface).

Khan takes the time to outline that the climate crisis is not the divisive issue that populist figures would have us believe. Now, Sadiq draws on his experiences to reveal the seven ways environmental action gets blown off course - and how to get it back on track.A disproportionately large number of pages in the book are given over to events in cities like Accra, Ghana, which apparently has a huge problem with illegal toxic waste. A word of advice to the author – if you want people to trust you, then you have to present both sides of the argument and not just the one that you want to believe.

What ensues is an unbelievable story about just how far one person will go to claim what they think they’re owed. While central govt has turned its back on climate change, the mayor of London fills the gap, showing that it is the mayors of large cities around the world who are taking this issue seriously. Scandalised, Khan underwent a political transformation that would see him become one of the most prominent global politicians fighting (and winning) elections on green issues. Humorous situations arise even when unintended, like the advice from his team not to shake hands with the ringleaders of Extinction Rebellion when they visit City Hall, lest they glue themselves to him. Evidently, grandstanding in Paris, and Delhi does more to reduce pollution in London than does building small railway line extensions in Hertfordshire.A drop-off point at the Royal Festival Hall (30 metres) has been created for visitors who are unable to walk from alternative car parks. Alternative parking for Blue Badge holders visiting the Southbank Centre can be found at the National Theatre car park (330 metres).
