ATS Expert Available to Comment on Court Decision to Delay EPA Case on Clean Power Plan

Expert:  George Thurston, MD, chair of ATS Environmental Health Policy Committee and noted expert on the health effects of air pollution.

Today, the America Thoracic Society expressed its disappointment in the DC District U.S. Court of Appeals’ decision to grant the Trump Administration’s request to delay consideration of court challenges to the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. 

 “This action is a great loss to the American public; it not only delays the climate change protections that would have been achieved by the plan, but also prevents the clean air human health benefits that would have resulted from its implementation,” said Dr. Thurston.
