Industries and Environmental Pollution

Justin Nobel interviews Lieutenant General Russel Honore about pollution caused by lax oversight in Louisiana .

Nobel also interviews Robert Taylor Jr., a resident of the town of Reserve, which is home to the only neoprene factory in the U.S. Taylor notes that "this past January chloroprene concentrations in the air were recorded at 332 times the federal guidelines." Taylor is concerned about the ongoing effects of the poison, and fears a catastrophic release of toxins. “If we can commit an act of war against another country for chemically poisoning their children,” says Taylor, “how can we stand by and do nothing when chemicals are poisoning our own children?”
