About this Event

You are invited to join Assemblymember Chad Mayes, former Senator Fran Pavley, author Beth Gardiner, and Politico journalist Debra Kahn for a special Legislative Briefing on Choked: Life and Breath in the Age of Air Pollution.

In Choked, Beth Gardiner travels the world to tell the story of this modern-day plague, taking readers from the halls of power in Washington and the diesel-fogged London streets she walks with her daughter to Poland’s coal heartland and India’s gasping capital. In a gripping narrative that’s alive with powerful voices and personalities, she exposes the political decisions and economic forces that have kept so many of us breathing dirty air. This is a moving, up-close look at the human toll, where we meet the scientists who have transformed our understanding of pollution’s effects on the body and the ordinary people fighting for a cleaner future.

Former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger calls Choked an essential read, stating "Gardiner’s powerful account of what the air we breathe is doing to our bodies couldn’t be more timely. Choked tells a gripping, complex tale full of memorable characters—starring one of the deadliest villains of all time, air pollution. It illuminates some disturbing realities, but it also gives us hope by showing us what we can do to clean our air."
