Below is a video testimony given at "The Revival: Time for a Moral Revolution of Values" Philadelphia service on July 25, 2016, about the concerns of environmental and public health impacts of polluting industries . A summary transcript of the video follows:
My name is Sheree Arnold and I live in Southwest Philadelphia next to a refinery. I suffer from asthma and breathing issues. Industrial pollution hurts all who are exposed to it, especially those living closest to the plants. In Southwest Philadelphia, over 25 percent of the children have some form of asthma. Health concerns are very real in the community. Environmental monitoring is necessary to preserve the health of those living in close contact with industrial pollution.
