First paragraph: "Over the past four decades, the Clean Air Act has earned a well-deserved reputation as America's most effective law for reducing dangerous pollution and protecting human health and the environment. The big polluters and their political allies have attacked this landmark law many times over the years, in the courts and in Congress."

We are going to return to our original fully-moderated format in the comments section.

The abusive complaints in the comment sections are just too far out of control at this point and have become a significant burden on our staff. As a result, our moderators will review all comments prior to publication. Comments will no longer go live immediately. Please be patient and check back.

To improve your chances of seeing your comment published, avoid confrontational or antagonistic methods of communication. Really that is the problem we are confronting.

We encourage all views. We discourage ad hominem disparagement.

Environmentalis ts are constantly demonized by the corporate media, and corporate lackey politicians, (mostly Republicans), and yet if not for them, our environment would be much more polluted, our wilderness areas would be gone, and millions of Americans would die at a much younger age. Thank God for environmentalis ts!!!

If you're looking for evidence of corporate insanity, you need look no further than those who OPPOSE clean air, because that cuts into profits.

Who but a lunatic would intentionally poison the air he breathes for fun and profit?

I'm afraid we've allowed the crazies to run the asylum.

Where in their childhood and adolescent education did these idiots get the idea that science has "two sides" and we get to vote on which side is "correct"? As for willymack's "lunatic who would poison the air he breathes for fun and profit," that lunatic figures he can use his profit to move into some exclusive enclave, well away from the smog and the bog, and leave us ordinary folk to wallow in his profitable sewer.
