The Canary in the Coal Mine

> This is a story of airport communities being poisoned from the fastest growing airport in the world.

> The quality of their lives threatened and the length of their lives shortened by the least-regulated polluting industry in the nation.

> This isn’t a problem just around airports. The environment and people’s health are affected as far as 6,000 miles away from airports. SeaTac is just a warning sign.

Why I’m Passionate About This Documentary

When I moved to SeaTac 12 years ago, I thought the only problem would be the noise. The sound of planes gets louder than a chainsaw every day.
After becoming a father, I realized there are far more serious risks the airport showers on SeaTac and other nearby communities. Experts are telling me this may include prominently shorter life spans, infertility, dramatically increased risk of heart disease, brain tumors and cancers.
I know there is a problem, and I know I need to take action to find solutions. This documentary is part of what I can do, so that others are encouraged to take action as well.
