Do you smell that? That's not just garbage rotting exponentially faster under the heat dome. It's a little more carcinogen-y than that.

According to Reuters, two environmental groups Wednesday said that Ohio is tops on a list of 20 states with the most toxic air pollution. Pennsylvania and Florida followed at the two and three spots.

The report from the Natural Resources Defense Council and Physicians for Social Responsibility bemoaned the coal and oil power plants that puff toxins into the air, citing electricity generation among the top culprits for those little nuggets of sickness-causing joy floating through the Buckeye State's airspace.

"Dude, that is totally coming from Michigan, not us," not accepted as an excuse.
