Polluters and their allies in Congress are launching an all-out attack on Michigan’s public health and our environment today, and Senator Stabenow and Representative Upton are actually leading the charge on pieces of this attack. Global warming poses serious threats to Michiganders’ health, our economy and our future, but these polluters’ proposals would weaken the Clean Air Act’s ability to protect us from the very pollution that is fueling the problem.
Today, Senator Stabenow and Senator Levin voted for a dangerous attack on Michiganders’ health that would block the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to clean up dangerous carbon dioxide pollution. Four proposals—dubbed “The Filthy Four”—that would have prevented the clean-up of carbon dioxide pollution were considered and blocked in the U.S. Senate.
Coal-fired power plants are the single largest source of mercury pollution in the United States. Emissions from these plants eventually make their way into Michigan’s waterways, contaminating fish and wildlife.
Industrial facilities continue to dump millions of pounds of toxic chemicals into America’s rivers, streams, lakes and ocean waters each year — threatening both the environment and human health. According to the EPA, pollution from industrial facilities is responsible for threatening or fouling water quality in more than 10,000 miles of rivers and more than 200,000 acres of lakes, ponds and estuaries nationwide.
