VIDEO: Lung Association aims to thwart Congressional attempts to weaken Clean Air Act

Every day, millions of Americans suffer from the effects of toxic air in the form of asthma attacks, heart attacks, strokes and even premature death. In an effort to thwart Congressional attempts to weaken the Clean Air Act the American Lung Association has issued a new video to draw attention to the devastating effects of air pollution on children.

"Right now, some in Congress and special interests are trying to stop the cleanup of toxic mercury air pollution; they are encouraging the EPA to ignore scientific evidence that smog harms health and can even cause premature death and they are erroneously claiming that it’s too costly for big polluters to install modern pollution controls," said a press statement issued by the group. “Members of Congress must know that any vote against clean air policies and ignoring the health of our children is unacceptable.”
