Bloomberg Business quotes Myron Ebell on the new EPA ozone standards along with other key voices on this issue.
The Obama Administration's new ozone rule provides yet another obstacle to restoring growth to the economy. Ozone levels have been declining across the country, but some areas have still not met the 2008 limit of 75 parts per billion. The new standard of 70 ppb will put much larger areas out of attainment. Economic experts have predicted enormous compliance costs and major job losses in these areas, especially in manufacturing and resource extraction industries, while the health benefits will be negligible. The ozone rule on top of the greenhouse gas rules make President Obama's Environmental Protection Agency the number-one job killer in America.
