We are living in a world with increasing levels of toxicity in the very air that we breathe, and yet we still have people who are denying that scientific fact. We need to reduce the CO2 as well as all toxic emissions in our atmosphere.

We already have studies reported in Science Daily (4/29/15) that reports air quality in China has significantly lowered fetal birth weights. One of my daughters is having a baby in September, and now I'm worried that the air quality in my home county has significantly changed for the worse, which in turn may affect the birth and life of my youngest grandchild.

My family's health is very important to me. Their lives are my legacy. What kind of legacy are we leaving for all our children's children?
