Economists Identify the 100 Top Air Polluters and Highlight the Economics of Environmentalism

What do General Electric, Koch Industries, Bayer, Dow Chemical and ExxonMobil all have in common? They all rank in the top ten of the Toxic 100, a list of the top 100 corporations that produce the most toxic air pollution and put human health at risk. The list, recently released by economists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, tracks toxic chemicals emitted into the air by top polluters and ranks the companies based on the toxicity of the pollution and other factors such as smokestack size, prevailing winds, and the number of people exposed to the pollution.
The Toxic 100 also tracks environmental injustice by measuring the share of pollution exposure borne by minorities and low-income communities. For example, minority communities bear 69 percent of the health risk from the air pollution produced by ExxonMobil, while minorities make up about 40 percent of the general population.
