EPA bans dust

yup ol zerobamao's new regs is ten times tougher than before only allowing 2.5 micrograms per cubic meter of dust pollution. walking on dirt exceeds this limit, cattle raise more grazing and forget about driving down a dirt road..... have we had enough yet grrrrrrr

Re: EPA bans dust

In accordance with section 319 of the Clean Air Act (CAA), EPA proposes to change the uniform air quality index used by States for daily air quality reporting to the general public by revising the sub-index for fine particles less than or equal to 2.5 micrometers (μm) in diameter (PM2.5).

WHEN WILL THE ATTROCITIES END?!?!?!?!!?!

Getting your undies in a bunch over a reporting standard doesn't seem very worthwhile to me.

Re: EPA bans dust

Here is yet another answer:

Clean the Air, Heat the Planet?

...There is thus a strong motivation for treating air pollution control and climate change in common policy frameworks (5, 6). However, recent model studies (79) have shown that changes in pollutant and precursor emissions, atmospheric burden, and radiative forcing are not necessarily proportional. Furthermore, as Shindell et al. report on page 716 of this issue, current models do not capture many of the complex atmospheric processes involving aerosols and reactive trace gases (10).

Re: EPA bans dust

Some thoughts:

Almost all surface mining would exceed these limits. No mining, or "Special exemptions" as judged by the govmint would be needed at what cost .

Less albedo with recent volcanic eruptions happening Cooler weather as a result.
Let's take this further. More sun striking the earth results in more volcanic activity. Sorta like a big heat lamp. This causes more volcanic activity and more reflection of the suns heat from earth, then less volcanic activity. A stable model emerges.
