We need the strongest possible pollution standards
The impact of air and climate pollution on our health is clear. Children, pregnant people, older adults, and individuals with heart and lung disease are more susceptible to air and climate pollution. There is also an economic cost to inaction. Just in the US, there were 28 confirmed weather and climate disasters that caused $1 billion+ in damages last year.
The EPA recently strengthened the national soot pollution standards after receiving thousands of comments from climate advocates. It's a good start, but these rules are just one of the many standards the EPA can update to ensure a safer and cleaner planet.
Our health – and our climate – can’t wait! Tell President Joe Biden and EPA Administrator Michael Regan to act boldly and swiftly to finalize and implement the strongest possible pollution standards.
