  WELCOME TO CLEAN AIR WATCH  
 
 

Welcome to the Clean Air Watch


We’ve made progress in cleaning up the air.  But it’s way too soon to breathe easy.

 

Tens of thousands of Americans are still dying early from dirty air.  Many others suffer from asthma attacks, bronchitis and other disease made worse by pollution.

 

At the same time, greenhouse gas emissions threaten the planet with global catastrophe.

 

Despite these problems, many in Congress seem more interested in the views of check-writing polluters. Click here >>

Meanwhile, powerful corporate interests seek to make sure the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency protects them, not breathers.

 

That’s where we come in.   As our name suggests, Clean Air Watch is a non-profit watchdog group that seeks to protect the public interest.

 

We closely monitor clean-air and climate policy and seek to present a public-interest perspective – one that is grounded in fact and analysis, not just a lot of hot air.

 

We educate the public about the value of clean air (and related developments in science regarding air and climate), and blow the whistle when miscreants attempt dirty deeds in the dark.

 

Check our Blog for Clean Air for the very latest developments.   Click here for information on how to subscribe to the blog as well as Clean Air Watch releases and articles.  RSS

 

We hope you will join us in this effort and alert us to other threats.

 

We're grateful for your interest in clean air.  Thank you for stopping by.

Should Big Polluters Own the Sky?
That’s one of the key questions as we consider how to limit and reduce global warming pollution. Many of the biggest coal-burning power companies claim they own the sky – and should be paid billions of dollars to reduce their emissions.

For more on this, see our White Paper, with a foreword by Larry J. Schweiger, President and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation.
