Detailed Information:
The antiquated power plants, exempt from the Clean Air Act, emit 23% of smog-forming nitrogen oxide into Georgia air. The impact of cleaning up these power plants would be like removing 4.8 million cars from Georgia roads. Smog pollution damages lung function, contributing to respiratory problems, especially for people with asthma. The Georgia AirKeepers Campaign website has information on what you can do to make the power plants clean up. The website also has an Asthma Network that provides information for people with asthma.
