COPSA MICA, ROMANIA-MAY 19:A young girl discovers dead flowers in a rubbish tip in the towering Soviet style housing estates in the polluted town of Copsa Mica, Romania May, 19 2008. The town is known for its status (in the 1990s) as one of the most polluted in Europe. This was due to the emissions of a carbon black factory and a smelter plant whose emissions have contributed to significantly higher incidence of lung disease and impotence, along with a life expectancy nine years below Romania's average.(photo by Lisa Wiltse/Getty Images)
