The EPA just proposed a new clean air safeguard for fine particulate matter, also called soot. Soot is one of the most dangerous forms of air pollution, contributing to heart disease, asthma, and premature deaths -- adding up to $1 billion a year in health costs.
These health protections are a no-brainer, but as usual big polluters are trying to stop them. The good news is that we can fight back. The EPA is taking comments on the soot safeguard right now.
