Every year these #cleanair safeguards are blocked, 38,600+ people will die early; 19,000+ will have heart attacks…

I am not allowed to make any "implied statement endorsing or opposing any political party or candidate" yet the title of your piece is "GOP's Dirty Air Hit List Sacrifices Americans Health"! I Question the EPAs numbers for premature deaths and illnesses. And are those deaths really attributed to power plants? It seems that more Air Quality Alerts are issued in cities far away from most power plants. Or is it that all power plant emissions end up in cities. The answer to cleaner air has always been and will always be CONSERVATION. Do your part, do more than your part. It is always easier to blame someone else than to blame yourself. Turn off all electrical appliances in your home or better yet research the cost for you to put enough solar panels in your yard to supply you and your family. If everyone had thier own solar power, we wouldnt kill all those people with coal.
