What is your strategy when it comes to allowing space for opposing views and holding a constructive public debate on the issues? He states that through education, as well as personal asthma concerns, he realised the extent of the problem.

If anything, BREATHE has actually made a very good case for prioritising London-specific issues like crime-fighting and transport, all of which are within the purview of the London mayor. Blending in anecdotes about his background and political career makes this journey of discovery feel genuinely real and relatable.It’s a topic fraught with contradiction, judgment, and discomfort that most leaders in our world - of all political colours - wish to deny, avoid or greenwash with platitudes. Members get the first chance to book our entire programme of events, including go-down-in-history gigs, concerts with world-class orchestras, and talks from cultural icons and political giants. Tough action on climate, many politicians think, is the triple whammy: an unsolvable problem, which doesn’t really matter in the here and now, and which will lose you votes.

For example, the cost of going from the car that I’ve got, which is polluting, to a car which is non-polluting. A powerful and practical riposte to anyone losing hope in the ability of politicians to tackle the climate crisis. I’ve heard amazing things about These Impossible Things by Salma El-Wardany, so I want to read that too. I'm actually astounded at the imagination of the author and the stories he puts out would be laughable were it not for the dark intentions behind them. That’s a pretty poor stab at presenting democracy as an obstacle to climate change without saying so bluntly.

But with every year bringing more wildfires, extreme temperatures and flooding - and with around 4,000 people still dying prematurely from London's polluted air every year, with older, working class and ethnic minority Londoners most affected - there is so much more to do. He talks about standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the Conservative leader of Uxbridge council over the 3rd runway at Heathrow. Whether by building coalitions across the political spectrum, putting social justice at the heart of green politics, or showing that the climate crisis is a health crisis too, he offers a playbook for anyone - voter, activist, or politician - who wants to win the argument on the environment. Motivated by the idea that if Ed Balls can do it, so could he, Khan takes up the challenge of entering the London marathon, kickstarting a chain of events spanning his reinvention as mayor (ending City Hall’s Johnsonian blue patch) and rebirth as a green evangelist.
