The Trump EPA has failed to strengthen standards for ground level ozone, or smog, that harms families across the country. Smog is a widespread and largely preventable form of air pollution that is a powerful lung irritant and asthma trigger.
Under the cover of COVID — a severe respiratory pandemic — the Trump EPA has not protected vulnerable families, instead they have made the situation worse by failing to curb dangerous pollution. Communities of color are more severely impacted by both the coronavirus and smog pollution. This latest failure is the EPA’s racist agenda at work.
