The air you are breathing right now is cleaner and healthier thanks to the Clean Air Act, which has prevented hundreds of thousands of premature deaths, millions of asthma attacks, tens of millions of child respiratory illnesses, and countless sick days.
Equally remarkable, these health benefits have come with a net profit to the American economy. Our environmental protection technology industry has exploded and generates nearly $300 billion per year in revenue, producing more than $40 billion in exports, and employing nearly 1.7 million Americans.
But, instead of celebrating this landmark law, the big polluters and their allies in Congress are planning to put our clean air health standards on trial and undermine our environmental health.
That's why we have launched this campaign — to mobilize online environmental advocates to stand up for cleaner air.
