To Torri at Urban Habitat:

I think a fascinating study is the potential siting of a recycled paper
mill in South Bronx - I have alternatley seen it lauded as model of
sustainable development including a model of addressing environmnetal
justice and alternately (always in different sources) heard of lawsuits in
the name of environmental justice (aggrevated asthma and lower air quality)
-  Would love to see a story exploring the complexity of both potenbtially
oversimplified versions!

Others in group may know about this and could contribute or it may already
be written or if there is interest but no authors I would be willing to
synthesize what I've yet learned and ferret out a bit more.
