NASA Releases Video Showing Asian Fires Migrating To North America

June 12, 2012

Here is a video NASA released yesterday showing smoke from Asia reaching North America. Under the current Clean Air Act, States are ultimately responsible for this foreign pollution—either by offsetting this foreign pollution with additional domestic controls on local citizens, or by spending time and money trying to prove to EPA that they shouldn’t be responsible for it (which in this case no one is then responsible for this pollution). See 42 U.S.C. § 7407(a); 7509a; and 7619(b).

Foreign pollution is impacting our health, our economy, and our ability to achieve the NAAQS. Time to align responsibility for addressing foreign pollution impacts with the authority to address foreign pollution impacts. The world is changing. We must change with it. Time to transform the SIP process. We can make it happen.
