Stop ignoring harm of pollution -- Jeff Seltz

August 12, 2018

The consequences of air pollution are beginning to pile up.

They include more emergency room visits for asthma, an increase in heart attacks and strokes, a higher death rate and more children with low birth weight and developmental delay. They include more intense storms, global warming, heat-related illnesses, loss of crops and other vegetation, and harm to the economy.

These problems need the attention of the federal government. Unfortunately, the president doesn’t acknowledge that they exist.
