Prescription for Justice - 005 Air Pollution - Purifying the Miasma
Together, air, water, soil, chemical, and occupational pollution cause over 9 million deaths worldwide each year, or 1/6 deaths worldwide. This is three times as many deaths as malaria, tuberculosis, and AIDS combined. Our guest today is Mary Peveto, president, Neighbors for Clean Air, who earned a BA in History from Macalester College. We will talk about air quality here in Oregon and what our local and state governments can do to improve it.
