The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed stronger air quality standards to control soot pollution, a dangerous type of air pollution responsible for heart and respiratory diseases that cause thousands of premature deaths every year.
Reducing soot pollution would protect the environment, improve public health, and save billions of dollars in health care costs. But, predictably, industries that dump soot pollution into our air are pushing back against these standards. For them, it's all about the bottom line, public health and the environment be damned.
Let the EPA know that Americans support the agency's efforts to protect our environment and our health. Please submit a comment in support of stronger standards to control soot pollution.
