Our work grabbed the attention of the Boston Globe as well as that of Curt Spalding, Regional Administrator of the EPA’s Region 1 office in Boston. In response to the flood of comments delivered to his doorstep, Sapalding said:
"This tremendous response signals that Americans know how important it is to cut down on mercury, arsenic, and other dangerous pollutants in the air we breathe. Not only will these safeguards prevent thousands of premature deaths and cases of asthma and other illnesses, they will level the playing field for power plants already using widely available clean technology. We're relying on the continued input of New Englanders, and all Americans, to help us make these vital safeguards a reality."
Once again, our voice has been heard by those responsible for helping us move beyond coal—stay tuned!
