When you speak out and when you write research, instead of calling the problem "human activity", call it "economic activity"
or "economic growth." Then we can inform policy in a meaningful way.
After all, sleeping, walking, vegetable gardening and being neighborly have very little to do with causing air pollution.

EPA Hearings on Ozone Air Quality Standards — August 30th & September 5th
PSR invites you to speak out for healthier air. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is holding hearings in five cities across the country on its proposal to strengthen ozone pollution standards. The trouble is, EPA's proposed "strengthening" doesn't go nearly far enough to safeguard the health of our communities. PSR activists around the country have emailed the EPA to call for stronger standards. Now we hope you'll make that demand in person!
Here is what's happening. Representatives from the Environmental Protection Agency will be in Los Angeles and Philadelphia on August 30, and in Atlanta, Chicago, and Houston on September 5 for a public forum on its new ozone proposal. We need to pack the hearings with clean air supporters and send a clear message that EPA must set a stronger ozone pollution standard — a standard that will truly protect the health of all Americans.
If you live in or around one of the hearing cities, we encourage you to attend and share your concerns about clean air. Full hearing details, including instructions on how to register, are provided below. For talking points you can share at the hearing and to learn more about the need for stronger ozone standards, click here.
Can't make it to one of the hearings? You can still get involved by sending a letter to EPA urging them to strengthen the ozone standard even further — click here. If you've already sent a letter, pass this message on to family and friends and ask them to support an ozone standard that will truly protect our health.
