About this deal

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.

Kuang has penned a dark and magnetising satire that takes a magnifying glass to an industry that has always appeared amorphous and opaque to the majority but, in Yellowface, we see it all (though mostly the bad and ugly).

A great book, sadly Goodreads seems to be becoming as full of fake troll accounts as twitter, so it’s been liked down by a lot of fake 1 star reviews, from accounts that seem to have not read the book, judging by the wild claims they make. Air pollution is killing people in London, and around the world, and it doesn’t have to be like this.

After he was diagnosed with adult-onset asthma as a result of breathing in pollutants from city vehicles, the mayor of London went on a mission to change emissions laws. The highest emissions are from planes and the underground, both things that Khan would prefer not to change. 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 .Ahead of a general election that is likely to take place before the end of 2024, Khan’s book reminds us that this approach didn’t work for Goldsmith at the ballot box.
