EPA and your lungs

As follow up to this earlier post about the EPA wanting to kill us all slowly, this morning we read:

The Corpus Callosum: More About the EPA's Malfeasance
the EPA actually did not change the limit on the average concentration of PM2.5 particles (averaged over one year). It merely lowered the limit on peak concentration (averaged over a 24-hour period). That means that polluters can still release just as much pollution; they simply have to limit the peak discharges.

Disgusting. Remember when we were young, and idealistic, and were deluded enough to believe that government agencies actually wanted to protect the health of citizens, regardless of the cost to corporations? Ha.
