"Every year, air pollution sends hundreds of thousands of Americans to emergency rooms, triggers millions of asthma attacks, and causes tens of thousands of premature deaths. At the same time, air pollution damages forest and aquatic ecosystems, poisons the fish we eat, and threatens the future of the planet by contributing to global warming. Power plants emit more air pollution than any other industry in the United States. The only comparable sources of air pollution are cars and trucks." ~WASHpirg
