I worked at a steel company straight out of high school. The air was beyond horrible. I then moved into a house that had mold. After living in NYC and Tennessee, I am back in Bham living in a sleepy little town near another big corporate polluter, which pumps out diesel that floats straight into my house.
I can never spend any time in my yard, or I will have an asthma attack. Their tractor-trailer trucks start revving their motors early and just sit there pumping out fumes before moving on. Companies like this should be far away from residential areas.
