EPA declines to tighten soot regulation despite evidence of health costs

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declined to strengthen requirements on tiny airborne particles of pollution linked to respiratory and cardiovascular illness, stressing the current levels are enough for protection. Casting doubt on studies which support strengthening the standards, Administrator Andrew Wheeler said, ’There’s still a lot of uncertainties’.

well, when the head of the EPA is a science denialist put in place by another science denialist, what do you expect? and whoever makes the claim that businesses would self regulate without government oversight is just plain stupid.

This cares not for power costs and technological limitations. There is a cost to every regulation and the study doesn't support this. The study selected for volunteers that had major respiratory issues already and assumed the conclusion in the thesis.
