This video follows the powerful public protests which lead to the successful closure of the medical incinerator at the V.A. hospital in Seattle. All over the United States neighborhood groups are organizing to protect themselves toxins that have been scientifically proven to be major contributors to an array of increasingly common diseases.

What's In Our Air? follows homegrown groups of organized citizens from the recognition of the fact that toxics in their air are affecting their families, through the process of gathering samples extracted from air near their homes, all the way through the challenge until this problem is solved. This is a definitive example of effective citizen action a telling inquiry into the issue of calculated placement of polluting plants in areas where polluters least expect organized measures by local citizens.
