E-M:/ Auto pollution and asthma



Folks,
 
Mr. Clift mentions the need for better auto milage standards to control air pollution.  Here is a link to today's story in the NYT regarding the very positive impact that auto restrictions during the Olympics had on asthma rates in kids and others.
 
This really gives some weight to the arguments that controlling air pollution is an essential component of an overall asthma reduction policy for Michigan and other states.
