Man-Made Disasters

You don’t need to live in the smog-, garbage-, and disease-choked third world to be in the firing line of man-made disaster. In fact, it doesn’t seem to be a matter of IF you will get a disease from breathing the air where you live. It’s a matter of WHEN. Unless you’re in a cabin deep in the Yukon chopping wood and reading this on the internet on a computer you made yourself out of ferns and berries, you are almost definitely going to die because of pollution (and it is going to hurt, too).

We asked each of our Vice magazine editors around the world to find the most pollution-spewing sites in their home city and send us a little toxic postcard. The results make Al Gore sound like Doris Day.
