Life-threatening toxic pollution is one of the biggest global killers, especially of women and children.  Moreover, the effects of pollution are usually felt far beyond its source.  The good news is that it is a problem that can be solved.  Solutions already exist.  After all, toxic pollution has already been mostly eliminated in the industrialized world.
