Issue Analysis 54 - The EPA's Proposed Air Quality Standards: First, Do No Harm

The EPA's proposed air quality standards for ozone and particulate matter might actually do more harm than good, even just in terms of public health. Recent studies suggest that the costs of the proposed standards could be $90 billion to $150 billion annually, forcing consumers to spend less on health care and safety products. A recent study by the Reason Public Policy Institute found that up to 27,000 fatalities may be attributed to the proposed standards.

Issue Analysis 53 - The EPA's Exaggeration of the Health Risk from PM2.5 A Summary of an Analysis by Dr. Kay Jones

Dr. Kay Jones' analysis of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) annual mortality estimates from fine particles has resulted in the discovery of several problems. His study demonstrates that the EPA's dependence on a key but highly flawed study, as well as its questionable use of this study's data, has led it to exaggerate the health risk from PM2.5. Dr. Jones concludes that promulgation of the proposed standard is scientifically unwarranted.
