I just sent a complaint to the Environmental Protection Agency, requesting federal action to address our state’s continual refusal to meet Federal Air Quality Standards regarding fine particulate pollution, and I urge each of you to do the same. To anyone who lives here in the valley, I don’t need to explain why. What is in our air is killing us, and it is clear that our state government is more concerned about the campaign cash it can collect from those violating reasonable standards than to protecting it’s citizens.
For the sake of our families and ourselves, please join me. It’s easy. Just use your favorite search engine to locate the EPA and follow the prompts. Your state government won’t do it for you. Oh, and if you are on the fence about whether federal land that has never belonged to the state needs to be relinquished by the federal government for local management, just look around and see the potential of what your state government can do for you.
