Ozone pollution is dangerous. Every year air pollution is killing 100,000 Americans, disproportionately in Black, Brown and low-income communities. 

74 million people of color live in a county with unhealthy air pollution. Meanwhile, the EPA is proposing to keep the current, inadequate ozone standard. Join us in sending a clear message to the EPA: listen to the science and adopt a stronger standard for ozone pollution. 

A stronger ozone standard will: 

  • Protect the people exposed to this harmful pollutant 
  • Save lives and protect the health of those hit hardest by the impacts of climate change 
  • Increase economic opportunity and productivity

RE: No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2018-0279

The current levels of domestic, human-caused air pollution are killing over 100,000 Americans each year, and disproportionately killing people of color.

The EPA’s proposal to keep the current, inadequate ozone standard is unacceptable. I urge you to strengthen the standard to no higher than 60 parts per billion (ppb).

A more stringent standard for ozone will protect the people exposed to this harmful pollutant, save lives, and increase economic opportunity and productivity by reducing lost work and school days due to pollution-caused illness. 

Without question, the nation needs stronger limits on ozone pollution. I call on you to head the science and set stronger standards to protect public health, especially for the most vulnerable.
