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."

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

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.
