    Clean air is as valuable as clean water: both are essential requirements for human health and survival. Statistics and data on emissions from burning fossil fuels is not new news, and solutions thus far have not been very successful. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will suggest that air is in danger of becoming a commodified natural resource, an asset to be traded and controlled. He will argue that air, like water, must be free and available for everyone in the name of world health and security.
