Scientists have long understood that air pollution is a serious health threat. The World Health Organization reported that in 2012, 1 in 8 deaths worldwide stemmed from air pollution.
These concerns were the foundation of sweeping legislation like the Clean Air Act, the same law under which the Obama administration is seeking to limit greenhouse gas emissions (ClimateWire, June 3).
President Obama argued that air pollution and carbon dioxide often come from the same sources, so cutting carbon yields health benefits in the near term. We need to plan now for big changes ahead.
