I have emphysema. I moved from Brooklyn, New York thinking that the Garden State would have cleaner air. Little did I know that New Jersey is a garden of ozone hell and particles. It makes no sense to have all this green vegetation for nothing. High property taxes, no means of mass transit between different municipalities is why everyone here drives a car and pollutes the air. Each municipality even has its own recycling dump; no wonder the air here is so toxic! I'm already trying to sell my house to move back and take my business with me. I deeply regret moving here, and I tell everyone not to.
