ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the move of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to tighten the country's air quality standards for ozone and smog. Although manufacturers and environmentalists are not happy with the decision of EPA, the author opines that the agency is taking the proper course. EPA only shows how it makes decisions based on science. It is also making the right move in planning to solicit opinion on the proposal throughout the country.
