Synopsis

A homemaker, Angela Pieroni, has spent eight years fighting for the rights of everyone to breath clean air. Pieroni explains she's done with just complaining and being brushed aside. She wants to see national legislation against air pollution. Dr. Bertram Carnow said he's not sure how long we'll be around as a species. Carnow explained that perhaps two or three million people will have to die before authorities take air pollution seriously.
