Support clean air for healthy recreation! Contact EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson TODAY and ask her to set strong national soot (fine particle) standards. Read AMC's new fact sheet on how fine particles affect our health and scenic outdoor views and why we need to strengthen the current outdated standards. Learn why EPA's proposed revisions fall short in protecting our health and urban and rural scenic vistas.
We all should be able to enjoy the outdoors, whether on a local bike path, trail or park. Particle pollution created by burning coal and other fossil fuels not only blocks scenic vistas, but also is comprised of the same particle pollution that is linked with respiratory illness and asthma, especially in children.
Please contact the EPA and ask them to set strong national soot standards TODAY!
