Over the period 1660-1800 the concentration of industries within the cities of England and the complete switch to coal as a fuel made the atmosphere of many of them more polluted than it would be at any other time in their history. While scientists and doctors realized the effects of these emissions there were no attempts to improve the quality of urban air, the desire to stop environmental pollution came more from the insight given by the new philosophic and literary movements that arise at the end of the eighteenth century. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
