Book 1: Clearing the Air

A multi-component assessment by a Harvard and Tsinghua collaborative team integrates studies to estimate and compare the national health damages of ambient air pollution in China by sector. It uses these estimates to assess the effects of green tax policies on emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases, human health, and the economy. The assessment and its results and policy conclusions are presented in a comprehensive volume, Clearing the Air: The Health and Economic Damages of Air Pollution in China (Ho and Nielsen 2007, MIT Press).
