How Discussed: Decades after many of the steel mills closed, Pittsburgh and the Mon Valley still have some of the highest levels of pollution in the United States. What are the causes of this pollution? What are the health effects? Does our reputation for having poor air quality hold back the region? How can ordinary citizens help monitor and improve our air quality?
