Many Americans are aware that you don't have to work at a power plant to be exposed to potentially harmful pollutants.
Fortunately, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be enforcing stricter emission limits for power plants and refineries under a revised provision of the Clean Air Act that was newly agreed upon by the Obama administration, the New York Times reports.
The new standards will affect the plants and refineries that constitute 40 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, according to the news source.
Individuals concerned about pollution and air quality can invest in high-quality air purifying systems for their homes, schools or work places.
