E.P.A. Administrator Emphasizes Progress On PM 2.5

Dan Bross

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy wrapped up her Alaska trip yesterday in Fairbanks. She toured the area, which suffers from elevated wintertime fine particulate pollution that often violates federal clean air standards.  As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, McCarthy had only praise for how Fairbanks is responding to smoke from wood and coal burning.
