The need to clean up air pollution and address climate change is more urgent than ever. Thankfully, the Biden administration has finalized several key clean air and climate protections, including:

  • Tighter limits on mercury and air toxics from power plants
  • Limits on the carbon pollution that drives climate change from power plants
  • Strong new limits on methane pollution from the oil and gas industry
  • An updated national standard for particle pollution 
  • New cleaner cars standards
  • New cleaner trucks standards

These are big wins for health and check off major items on the administration’s clean air to-do list. Now, the administration must also issue final decisions to allow California waivers for its own, stronger cleaner vehicles programs.
