This is a big week for the Environmental Protection Agency, as Friday is the day it releases its final version of the controversial extension to the historic Clean Air Act.
There has been much debate over these changes, with opponents of the change arguing that the effect the new laws will have on the economy would be disastrous when piled on to the already shaky financial foothold the nation has found. Supporters argue that the amount saved in the long run will more than outweigh any temporary drops, as the resulting increase in human life and health will severely reduce medical expenses while improving the environment greatly.
The bill's detractors claim that the changes will also affect energy-producing factories and severely affect the national power grid. The EPA responds with claims that the majority of current energy-production facilities will have no problem coping with the changes, and the ones that might have an issue will be inspired to put more effort into researching and implementing cleaner energy to keep business going.
While the debate rages on, the air near your home may remain full of toxins. To combat this, consider investing in a medical-grade air purifier to keep your home clean and healthy.
