Hi all –
In case you haven’t already seen it, there’s a new advocacy Web site called “Mom’s Clean Air Force” http://www.momscleanairforce.org/
The site is paid for and authorized by the Environmental Defense Fund. Here’s part of its mission statement: “Moms are joining together, to come out in strength for our kids’ right to clean air — just as our parents fought for us, forty years ago, to get the Clean Air Act signed into law by President Richard Nixon. Moms Clean Air Force is nonpartisan–because clean air should be more important than politics.”
A number of celebrity Moms have joined this organization. It’s a relatively new organization and new Web site, so the air pollution topics only include: Mercury Poisoning, Asthma and Coal.
They need to hear from us about wood smoke issues. Please consider contacting them with your information and your personal stories about the hazards of wood smoke, especially for children since that is this organization’s primary focus.
