a counterintuitive hypothesis that air pollution promotes innovation and creativity. Two archival studies (Study 1-2) found that air pollution predicted innovation at country- and company-level. Study 3a-3b experimentally established causal connection between air pollution and creativity. Study 4 replicated hypothesis in real weather context and proved arousal’s mediating role.
