More air quality improvements necessary to improve kids' health

If there is any reason why the public can agree that environmental matters matter, it is for the health of the nation's children. Kids are born into this world having played no role in the condition of the environment. Yet, they are the most vulnerable to the problems that exist within the water, air and overall environmental landscape.

Atlanta meets old smog limits; recent standards still a problem

Maintaining good air quality in urban areas is not easy. Emissions from motor vehicles, factories, and power plants react to sunlight creating a chemical fog near the surface, a ground level ozone most commonly referred to as smog. In order to help limit smog, the Environmental Protection Agency issues limits on how much pollution is permissible in a given area. And after some hard work, Atlanta recently met the EPA standards. The only problem is the EPA set those standards in 1997, and the standards set in 2008, as well as increased standards proposed for the future. While the meeting of air quality standards, even outdated ones, is a sign of progress, many metropolitan areas still have a hard time progressing enough to really catch up to guidelines currently in place. Atlanta is doing better than some cities, however, who are still struggling even to meet 1987 standards. For businesses, it is an uphill battle as they strive to clear one hurdle only to be faced with a new challenge.
