Tighter Air Pollution Standards May Save Thousands of Lives: New ATS & Marron Institute Report

Reducing outdoor concentrations of two air pollutants, ozone (O3) and fine particulate matter (PM2.5),  to levels below those set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency would likely save thousands of lives each year, result in far fewer serious illnesses and dramatically reduce missed days of school and work, according to a new analysis conducted by the American Thoracic Society and the Marron Institute of Urban Management at New York University.
