Georgia city will participate in air clean-up project

These days, it can come as a surprise to see politicians actually work together in a positive way. With the announcement of a new environmental effort, it looks as though at least 10 politicians have found common ground: they wan to create cleaner air in their cities.

Atlanta, Georgia, is one of the cities that will hopefully be a benefactor of a clean air effort. Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed is participating along with nine other mayors from large U.S. cities in a project aimed at green-house gas emissions.

If all goes well with the environmental mission, the quality of the air that people breathe in their cities will be better. The following are participating cities:

  • Atlanta
  • Los Angeles
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Denver
  • Houston
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Philadelphia
  • Orlando
  • Salt Lake City

The mayors in the various cities are working with the National Resources Defense Council and the Institute for Market Transformation to address the gas emissions from commercial and apartment buildings that fill their admirable skylines.

With the several big cities taking steps to make their buildings more energy-efficient, the hope is that air will be cleaner and messages will be sent beyond those specific locations. Depending on the cities and environmental laws there, the clean air effort might instigate desire and/or demand for stricter laws regarding green-house gas emissions.

When there is word about how this project impacts Georgia, we will post an update.

New air quality goals might be important, but there are still goals -- laws -- that must be met in order to save communities from unhealthy, unnecessary pollution. When those laws are not met, people can get sick. An environmental compliance lawyer is a valuable source to help those whose lives are compromised by legal violations.
