Ozone is a deadly pollutant directly linked to asthma and respiratory illnesses, which impact the most vulnerable in our communities: children and the elderly.
Normally, Americans would look to the EPA to protect our communities from dangerous pollutants. But as EPA Administrator, Pruitt is doing just the opposite. He wants to weaken our pollution standards to appease corporate polluters, making our air even dirtier.
What happens if Pruitt gets his way? Cutting back on ozone standards would mean hundreds of thousands of asthma attacks and missed school days each year. Hundreds of Americans would die prematurely from breathing dirtier air.
We must fight back. Act now: Demand that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt uphold our nation’s ozone standards.
