Protecting Our Children from Foreign Pollution

May 15, 2012

Who should be ultimately responsible for protecting the health of our children from the growing and newly discovered problem of foreign pollution impacts (see NOAA study and 2010 HTAP report)?  Our 40-year-old system places the ultimate responsibility for this new problem on the States (42 U.S.C. § 7407(a)). But the States do not have the power to directly address this new problem (U.S. Const. Art. I, Sec.10). 

When you go to the pool with your children, do you make sure that someone watches them who has the power to save them . . . or do you allow someone else to be responsible who does not have the power to save them?

Time to protect our children.  Time to make sure the person responsible for protecting our children from the impacts of foreign pollution has the power to protect them.  The world is changing.  We must change with it.  Time to transform the SIP process.  We can make it happen.
