CHAPTER I | CHAPTER II | CHAPTER III

Black smoke from an oil refinery darkens the skies over Houston -- airspace already ranked among the most polluted in the country. For thousands of residents living right alongside the city's industrial plants, the odors and dust in the air are clear signs the plants are polluting the environment. But no one has ever bothered to tell them exactly what they are breathing...until now. EXPOSÉ details the Houston Chronicle investigation that gave a city the answers to some troubling environmental questions.
