There’s confessional bits: he did not enjoy lockdown but is acutely aware – having a garden, wife, kids and a dog – he had it better than many. Join Khan for this memorable evening and hear him demonstrate how anyone – whether voter, activist or politician – can win the argument on climate. A study commissioned by City Hall found that in 2019 between 3,600 to 4,100 deaths in Greater London were estimated to have been attributable to air pollution. Indeed, at a recent People’s Question Time held in my constituency, an insistent angry mob tried to shout him down, as occurred at the South Bank launch of this book; both interruptions downright irritating.

You get the impression that the talents of city mayors, such as they are, would be better employed on running the cities which they are elected to run. For Khan, the opposite is true – since the people in these communities are most at risk from the harms of air pollution, he argues that his efforts to tackle the problem are driven by a commitment to improve their lives, as he explained during his recent appearance at the LSE Festival. Blending in anecdotes about his background and political career makes this journey of discovery feel genuinely real and relatable. But you get the impression that Khan has something of a disdain for boroughs with no London postcodes. 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.His clear love of London contrasts with his predecessor’s use of it as a stepping stone to a bigger political job. A drop-off point at the Royal Festival Hall (30 metres) has been created for visitors who are unable to walk from alternative car parks. According to the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, a core principle underpins the environmental policy changes he is driving for the capital: justice. Ultimately, we, the creatures and life we share the planet with - and future generations - are one community. Just take your badge and car park ticket to the parking attendant office at the entrance to the car park for validation before you leave.

But as a window into his political operations, it is significant, arriving roughly a year before Khan will seek a historic third term at City Hall – the prize that has eluded all of his predecessors. Other people though, latch on to those genuine concerns, and you have to keep an eye on that vocal minority that can seem louder than the silent majority.It is the first time a UK Mayor has been invited to participate in such an event, recognising London’s place as a driving force in accelerating and delivering climate action. Now, Sadiq draws on his experiences to reveal the seven ways environmental action gets blown off course – and how to get it back on track.
