It's unclear when it was shot, presumably on a drizzly day last summer, when Warren was in town for the Democratic debate. The two walk in 48217, behold the flaring smokestacks of the area near the Rouge River, and discuss the smell in the air, and the unseen toxins that accompany it. 

Watch the video via Warren's Twitter account:
