Maryland asks EPA to crack down on pollution from Midwest coal plants
from The Baltimore Sun
Maryland environmental regulators are asking their federal counterparts to crack down on 19 coal plants in five other states whose emissions — carried hundreds of miles by the wind — make the air here unhealthy to breathe on hot summer days. The plants have spent billions of dollars on technology to reduce pollution, but according to Maryland officials, they don't use it every day during the summer, when heat and sunshine cause the pollutant ozone to form and make air quality its worst.
