I’m tired of the “greenies” attitude of the sky is falling or “clogging” if you will.

Continuing increases in environmental regulation will just fuel inflation and make it harder to find a job or pay basic bills for the 99%.

Thank goodness the AQCC is taking steps to protect all of our health. If I have to pay a few more dollars a year for gas but keep my health, it’s worth it.

I’m old enough too, and have also looked at the reports, I remember industry at the time fighting the Clean Air Act (amendments that dealt with mobile sources signed by President Nixon) predicting all manner of calamity.  Talk about Chicken Littles—its the oil and gas lobbyists that claim any improvement in public health and safety will somehow doom the world’s richest industry.
