Tell the EPA to clean up soot pollution
Dear EPA Administrator Michael Regan,
Thank you for proposing stronger air quality standards for particulate matter. New limits on soot pollution are one of the best ways the Biden administration can improve Americans' health.
We encourage the EPA to move swiftly to adopt the strictest possible standard (no higher than 8 mcg/m3 annual and 25 mcg/m3 daily), which could save an estimated 15,000 lives per year. Anything less would mean a missed opportunity to secure cleaner air for millions of Americans.
Recent scientific studies have found that no level of fine particulate pollution is safe, and our current standards don't protect people's health and safety enough. Please do all you can to tackle air pollution.
