Stand Up for Strong Soot Protections


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.

Stand up for life-saving soot protections. Send a comment to the EPA and support their proposal today!
