Clean Air Watch commends EPA for proposing aggressive action to clean up dirty, dangerous boilers.
This is a huge step towards protecting children from toxic mercury and other hazards from smokestack pollution.
Mercury can poison the brains of babies. The boilers in question are a significant part of the mercury problem, and it is high time they were cleaned up.
This is one of the most significant steps taken by the Obama EPA to protect public health. Literally thousands of dirty-air deaths would be prevented each year.
We strongly encourage EPA to stand up to pressure from big polluters to water down this important public health protection plan.
