Dr. Jay Speaks About America's Super Polluters
A tiny minority of America’s industrial sites released more greenhouse gases than all the passenger cars in the country combined and a third of all chemicals that companies reported pumping into the air in 2014, according to a nine-month investigation by the Center for Public Integrity. More of the people who live within three miles of these polluters are poor or African-American than the country as a whole, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
In Indiana industrial greenhouse-gas emissions are second only to Texas domestically, and exceed those from Israel, Greece and 185 other countries. Our own Dr. Jay was quoted in this documentary.
