Ensure Improved Air Quality in the U.S.

Target: Environmental Protection Agency

Goal: Ensure improved air quality in the U.S.

Despite many actions by numerous parties, air pollution remains one of the largest health issues in the United States. Recently, however, the Environmental Protection Agency has released a new plan to take more action against the smog issues, and implement higher standards for air quality. These new actions should greatly improve the air quality and the health of many people all across the country.

The smog problem in the United States has been persistent since the Industrial Revolution. It mostly results from the usage of diesel equipment and coal power plants. The current standards for soot, or particle pollution, is 15 micrograms per cubic meter, and the new EPA standards will reduce the level between 13 micrograms per cubic meter and 12 micrograms per cubic meter.

Air pollution from soot results in several negative externalities. The health risks involved include asthma attacks, acute bronchitis, heart attacks, and strokes. The new EPA standards, created initially and justified because of the Clean Air Act, are entirely necessary to improve quality of life and will greatly benefit the citizens of the United States.


Dear Environmental Protection Agency,

The dangerous level of air pollution in America has been threatening the health and safety of its citizens for several decades. Finally, action is being taken to combat these issues and it is all thanks to you. I would like to extend my personal congratulations for working to help raise the quality of life in America.

The soot problem in the United States has been persistent since the Industrial Revolution. Air pollution from soot results in several negative externalities. The health risks involved include asthma attacks, acute bronchitis, heart attacks, and strokes. The visibility issues resulting from soot also reduce the natural beauty of natural scenic byways, cities, and National Parks.

This new clean air initiative should be just the beginning. The state of America’s air is vital to the state of America’s well-being. By improving the air quality in the United States, you are improving the quality of living for people all over the country.
