Cleaning Big Cities' Air "Not Rocket Science," Expert Says October 27, 2005 Hemmed in by mountains on three sides, the basin that houses Mexico City, Mexico, has some the dirtiest air in the world. Pollutants spewed by power plants and tailpipes have nowhere to go. They stay within the city and compromise the health of thousands of people.
