Where Ozone Pollution Is Already A Problem, One Blogger Opposes Cleaner Air

The US Environmental Protection Agency - - an arm of the pro-business, pro-growth Bush administration - - wants to bring about modestly cleaner air, with less ozone, in 345 US counties.

The EPA didn't accept the plan endorsed unanimously by its own scientific panel for a more stringent approach, and backed a compromise.

Some of those counties are in Wisconsin - - Door, Kenosha, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine and Sheboygan - - but one conservative blogger from Milwaukee County, where ozone levels need improvement, thinks the EPA is wrong.


Or not.

I'm with the previous poster -- I have a toddler with asthma and live in a city with ozone-polluted air. Terrible combo; see my blog post on this:
