Oppose Dirty Air Riders to S. 1813
Protect Children from Mercury Pollution from Industrial Boilers
On February 16, 2012 the Council strongly supported the final publication of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Mercury and Air Toxics Rule, the nation’s first ever national standard to reduce toxic emissions like mercury, dioxin and arsenic from coal-fired power plants. This was an exciting milestone for Clean Air Council and our environmental partners across the region who have been working together to protect children from mercury pollution - a dangerous neurotoxin that harms a child’s developing brain.
