Maryland asks EPA to step in to reduce smog from Midwest

BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland officials are seeking federal help in reducing the pollution that blows in from the Midwest.

The Baltimore Sun reports (http://bsun.md/2eJG0BT) state environmental regulators filed a petition Wednesday asking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to crack down on 19 coal plants in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia whose emissions they say make Maryland’s air unhealthy to breathe on hot summer days.

The plants have spent billions of dollars on technologies to reduce pollution, but state environment secretary Ben Grumbles says they’re not using them every day during the summer, when the heat and sunshine cause the pollutant ozone to form and make air quality its worst.

I'm going out to buy tinfoil in the morning, 3:51. Getting the oven heavy duty. Do you need me to get some for you, too?

EDUCATE yourself.
What is so difficult about that suggestion?

Do you not believe the technology exists to alter the weather?
Are you naive?
