“I’m fifteen years old, and a sophomore in high school. In my decade and a half living in America, I have inhaled the equivalent of about five-thousand-five-hundred cigarettes, when in reality I’ve never touched one. I’m only a teenager and that is an outrageous number. There are millions of people who have breathed this poor air for far longer than me, getting sicker and sicker with every breath they take. It is shameful that so many Americans - 150,000 - die prematurely each year from preventable pollution related causes.”
