Port Arthur, Texas, United States
Port Arthur is home to the United States’ largest refinery, to numerous other Petrochemical facilities, as well as tank farms, railroad lines, and shipping facilities.
The massive amounts of fossil fuel pollution to the land, air, and water in Port Arthur, along with the pollution released into the channel that flows into the Gulf of Texas, is continuing to destroy the residents’ lives, as well as wildlife and marine life.
The infrastructure build out is everywhere. The community suffers from the stench of air pollution. It is becoming a sacrifice zone for the petrochemical industry.
