The 'Hazing' of Our National Parks
"Dirty air and its consequences...afflict many of our great national parks, but especially those that lie eastward and downwind of the big coal-fired power plants of the Midwest and Appalachia." Parks have no control over the industrial air pollution -- park haze -- that is carried by the wind. "That problem can be addressed only by national regulation, and on this score Washington has long been astonishingly negligent." The editorial calls for the toughening of environmental rules to address park haze, including forcing companies to clean up in a shorter time frame.
