New pollution rules will reduce asthma, heart attacks: Obama

Emissions spewing out of the coal fired Morgantown Generating Station, on May 29, 2014 in Newburg, MarylandUS President Barack Obama said Saturday that his administration’s proposals to cut carbon emissions will prevent thousands of asthma cases and heart attacks each year. Obama’s prediction came during his regular weekly broadcast address as he discussed proposed guidelines designed to “cut down on the carbon pollution, smog, and soot.” Some 40 percent of the country’s carbon pollution comes from power plants — and while there are limits on the amount of toxic chemicals like mercury and arsenic that the plants can produce, there are no similar national limits for carbon pollution. He described the proposals, which could be unveiled as early as Monday, as “America’s first climate action plan,” which “cuts carbon pollution by building a clean energy economy – using more clean energy, less dirty energy, and wasting less energy throughout our economy.”
