Reducing Air Pollution from Power Plants
EPA is taking action to reduce mercury, acid gas, and other life-threatening air emissions from power plants. Through three coordinated regulatory approaches under the Clean Air Act, EPA will put long-delayed public health protections into place.
December 21, 2011 - EPA finalizes Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) the first national Clean Air Act standards to reduce mercury and other toxic air pollution from coal and
oil‐fired power plants..
July 6, 2011 - EPA finalizes Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), which requires 27 states to improve air quality by reducing power plant emissions that contribute to ozone and/or fine particle pollution in other states.
While some power plants are well controlled, many are not. These rules will rely upon proven and widely available emissions control technologies to level the playing field and assure that all power plants follow the same rules. Installing emissions controls will help modernize our aging fleet of uncontrolled power plants, most of which are over 30 years old. Meeting the requirements of these rules will create good jobs for American workers building, installing, and operating emissions control equipment.
Power plants release mercury, other metals, acid gases, and particles that harm people's health.
Mercury causes neurological damage, including lost IQ points, in unborn babies and young children exposed during the first few years of life.
Metals such as arsenic, chromium, and nickel can cause cancer.
Acid gases cause lung damage and contribute to asthma, bronchitis and other chronic respiratory disease, especially in children and the elderly.
Particles cause premature death and a wide range of lung and heart diseases.

Change over every energy sucking light bulb you can find. Reduced demand from solar and energy savers will crush big fossil fuel corrupt Republicans.
Rubber chicken is part of the new Rubber Ducky Kids Meal. It improves teething in infants.
And the diet Coke dissolves tooth enamel to improve the rate of cavity decay, a plus for the dental profession.
It's all about the money. The KO crooks need to be jailed now ! Toxic food fuels the decline of American health. Obesity and diabetes are bankrupting Medicare. Shut down these poison mills or make them clean up their rubber chicken Toxicola routine, now !
Big oil and big coal must crash and burn. Nat gas is a buck a gallon.
Global warming is real. Bag holders know Al Gore was right.
Oil and coal stocks must crash and burn, cars can run on nat gas for a buck a gallon. Defeat all filthy politicians who are against a dollar a gallon at the gas pump. Coal and oil are dead. Climate change is real.
Even a nitwit could figure it out.
The coal slurry spill in Knanwanha county was viewed by Aliens.
(CNN) -- Inspectors are looking into the cause of a coal slurry spill in West Virginia's eastern Kanawha County after it blackened six miles of a creek, officials with the state Department of Environmental Protection said Tuesday.
More than 100,000 gallons of the coal slurry is believed to have flowed into Fields Creek, a tributary of the Kanawha River, officials said. Inspectors are testing the water to determine exactly how much leaked into the creek, the officials said.
The spill at Patriot Coal was caused when a valve inside a slurry line malfunctioned, the state environmental protection officials said.
Containment efforts by Patriot Coal began immediately, and cleanup activities are underway, said Janine Orf, a vice president at Patriot Coal.
State EPA spokesman Tom Aluise said the water in the county was safe to drink, though West Virginia American Water has a "do not use" alert in place for pregnant women in the Kanawha Valley after an unrelated January 9 spill.
Nat gas is a buck a gallon. Obama must force big oil to crash and burn.
A buck a gallon at the pump for nat gas. Big oil #$%$ must crash and burn.
Big Coal, Big Oil. The crooks must be finished off. Dead cats bounce, dinosaurs go extinct.
Nat gas at a buck a gallon will power a ford 150 or honda. Obama will close gas stations and run clean on Nat gas. Coal and oil must crash and burn, like coal powered polluter plants. Hess chart looks like a dead whale.
Coal creeps were in Kahoolawe kahootz with safety regulatory mining sleezeballs..
Mobil, Exxon, ANR . Doomed or dinosaurs. Natural gas is a buck a gallon, fill car from your garage natural gas hose. Heat with nat gas, light up your led lights with solar. Tell
Your electric company and big oil to shove it. Fire up steel plants with met coal. Think Sierra Green.
We are so close to killing this bill, but we need a few more votes to make sure that we bury the coal terminals and this bill. The bill will close the coal terminals down.
