Extra costs for public buildings that need more repair to the outside because of pollution damage
Toxic waste, superfund cleanups
Less fish, higher prices for fish

Grandma, granddad, mom, dad, uncle or aunt, friend dieing a few years earlier from lung disease
How about all the people who you know who have asthma? Don’t you notice that there are more and more each year ? No link?
