Abstract: 

Pollution from Western industrial economies becomes concentrated in the air and water. This segment profiles the air quality problems in Los Angeles, California, and the pollution of Europe's Rhine River. The products and services bought by consumers, and their resulting pollution, have fouled these once-clean resources and forced us to establish expensive clean-up efforts to try and repair the damage. The program also suggests the importance of preventing pollution in the first place, using new technologies and techniques that do less harm to the environment.
