I once saw a documentary about people that lived near a bunch of polluting plants in Canada (across from Detroit). One in three children had asthma, while the plants denied any involvement. At the same time however, they paid to move a classroom further away from their pollution. Well that is an admission of guilt in my book. It is time that billion dollar companies quit being so greedy that they compromise the quality of life for humans just to save money or avoid lawsuits. Our government is here to protect us from big business, but is instead bought off by them, while we sit here facing the repercussions. When the facts are so obvious, why are we as a people so apathetic to let our corrupt government make millionaire senators that will never sign bills that conflict with their sources of hush money?
Diesel is also a big contributor to the asthma casualties. And yet we sit here and say it is of unknown etiology or a combination of factors. This may be so, but i say the majority of cases are caused by our own dirty manufacturers, and a government that turns a blind eye for a price every time.
I will post the documentary when i find it.
