EPA Sets New Air Pollution Standards for Coal-Fired Power Plants

EPA Sets New Air Pollution Standards for Coal-Fired Power Plants

The new regulations, known as the Cross State Air Pollution Rule , will improve air quality for 240 million Americans , preventing a projected 30 thousand premature deaths and up to 15 thousand nonfatal heart attacks, as well as hundreds of thousands of cases of asthma and other respiratory ailments. “As a mother of a son with asthma, I know that these numbers and the fight we wage for clean air are not just abstract concepts,” Jackson told reporters on a conference call Thursday. “Behind these numbers are people’s lives and livelihoods. We all know that pollution generated in one state or one community does not stop at the border or the city lines. Just because wind and weather will carry air pollution away from its source at a local power plant doesn’t mean that pollution is no longer that plant’s responsibility.”
