EPA science advisers: breathers need a tough smog standard

EPA's independent science advisers have once again issued a call for a tough smog standard.

The advisers met earlier this week to review recommendations by EPA career staffers. The advisers said breathers need tougher standards than those recommended by EPA's staff (which -- need we mention it? -- had the Bush politicos breathing down their necks).

Why should we care? Without tougher standards, hundreds of thousands of kids will have permanent lung damage.
