This so called "clean air act" sounds more like a job killing act. GOP may want to see about repealing this nonsense. The employer knows what is best for the environment not some "office" person in DC.

No wonder we have no jobs here. We have little government nazis running around playing gestapo in every remaining business, meanwhile - our jobs quietly fold against the pressure and soon the jobs reappear in Asia. It's ironic - during Beijing's olympics, the Chinese govt shut down the factories to help clear the air for the tourists. Yep, I'm a conservative, Yep, 10th generation American, Yep, I believe if you dont agree with me you are an idiot, so what! Our jobs are leavin the country to supposedly save the crawfish, and other useless wildlife. America will not be any significance on the world stage in less than 10 years if this continues! Wake up, please.

Now if only the EPA can tell us why and what these jets are spraying across our skies on a regular basis. Is it weather modification? The people deserve to know. I would assume it can't be good.

You won't need a job if you die from lung cancer. Lung cancer isn't just for smokers anymore! The quality of the air or lack of quality plays a much bigger role in lung cancer in "never smokers." Another contributor to lung cancer is asbestos and radon. Radon is a gas which comes from under the ground. You can not see, or smell it. You can have your home tested for radon and if it tests too high it can be vented. There are other cancers caused by the air quality, preservatives and chemicals in our food, toys, clothing, candles, laundry detergent, the list seems to be endless. We will never rid any of the above of all toxins but you can choose to breathe cleaner air. As far as the employer knowing what is best for the environment just look to the past. It speaks for itself. And should you be upset because I posted a reply to your comment, well remember it for later in life. You have the right to your opinion and so do I.

You're an idiot. My family's been here since the Mayflower as well, I don't really know why that matters. And yes, it is ironic that China shut off its manufacturing to clean the air during the olympics. Namely because a country shouldn't have to wait until a worldwide event to acknowledge that the pollution is hazardous. Also, if you want to use China as a measuring stick by all means, have fun picking rice for $0.10 a day, cause thats exactly what you'll get with that kind of mentality over here. You'll be wallowing in your own feces without bathing for weeks cause there's no running water and the private businesses won't pay you more because they don't have to.
Plus, industrial manufacturing is history. If you want to be relevant and successful in ten years you need to concentrate on sustainable, technology related solutions. That is, if your smart enough to figure it out. But hey, there's always that rice picking gig in wonderful industrial manufacturing China if you want it...
