On March 16, the EPA announced its new baseline for allowable power plant pollution.
Since then:

Americans have died prematurely
(one every 48 minutes)

Americans have suffered heart attacks
(one every 2 hours)

People have suffered

preventable asthma attacks
(one every 4 minutes)

Americans have missed

days of work
(one every 58 seconds)

— while we wait for the rules to be enacted.

We can't wait any longer for a common-sense baseline limiting how much mercury, arsenic and other toxins power plants emit. Any delay by Congress is unconscionable.
