Sustainability and Sustainable Development

Global Pollution-Caused Mortality

2017 November VOL 16 Issue 1

As many Journal readers know, over the past several years, the Arizona Environmental Strategic Alliance (AESA) has co-sponsored numerous seminars on air pollution with both Pinal County and Maricopa County Air pollution regulatory agencies. In 2018, more air quality seminars will be held with those agencies but now that we have moved the Journal for Environmental Management to an ONLINE format, we can provide more timely information about pollution (of all genres) on a more frequent basis, just by updating this website as new data and critical information becomes available.

And, this new ONLINE format allows those of us who write for the Journal to bring you breaking news and up to date information on a much more timely basis than the bi-monthly print edition ever could.



More Archive Columns Added

2017 November VOL 16 Issue 1

The Journal will, over time, continue to add back-issue columns to the searchable tables for each Journal columnist.
