Harry Wang, MD

Sacramento, CA

My family has always enjoyed being in the outdoors in nature. We hike in California's Sierra Nevada mountains every year and enjoy daily walks along the Sacramento River. Our daughter's asthma and hospitalization at age eight brought my professional concerns about the impact of poor air quality to a very personal level.

We deserve clean air for all our citizens to breathe, especially our children, seniors, and those with chronic health issues. The science is clear about the devastating health effects of air pollution and what needs to be done to protect our community. The Clean Air Act must be fully implemented. Attempts to weaken this public health law or undermine the authority of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency should be rejected.

Thank you for all you do. We don't want strong clean air laws, we want STRONGEST, IMPOSSIBLE TO MANIPULATE laws and we want major penalties for those who violate those laws.

Keep doing a fantastic job, sir. We salute you!

Dr. Wang, I want to thank you for being a voice for those of us who can not breathe the air on most days. I suffer from an environmental illness, as well as others. For years I have been trying to get people to understand that our lives and health depend on clean air, water and foods.Now I no longer feel alone in this quest. Once again , thank you for giving all of us a chance at better health. Sincerely,Karen Ratzlaff

It amazes me that we have to fight for clean air but we do and so I thank you Dr. Wang for getting in there and fighting from the inside.

Fight for my husband, whose COPD was aggravated daily working at a diesel magnet site (strip mall) for 24 years, and to this day fears the simple life-giving act of breathing a final load of PM2.5 tailpipe emission.

Why would someone not want clean air, are companies that destructive that they would poison the air for everyone, children, seniors,women? yes greed has no bounds, ask the Koch brothers there is not enough money in the world for them and they have done what ever it takes to make them richer at the destruction of the earth fro the rest of us.

Thanks for standing up with your advocacy. We all need to follow your example/

Keep up the good work. Thank You.

As a lover of the outdoors who now suffers from asthma, I feel that you're speaking for me, too. Thank you Dr. Wang!

I'D LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR GREAT EFFORTS PROTECTING OUR CLEAN AIR

What else can we depend on for our collective health? CLEAN AIR!! It is THE number one important aspect of our lives that we can control. That is, if we choose to prioritize it in our lives. And in the life of our country.

Everyone in the WORLD knows that without clean air to breath we will have problems with our lungs as we grow older and will also lower our life span.Do you want our kids to live a shorter life span than we do? These corporations have to be regulated if they are polluters of our air thats all there is to it.

Thank you for all your efforts to protect our air!

We support Harry Wang!

Dr. Wang, please let our lawmakers know that Californians want strong clean air laws! Thank you for going to DC to represent us!

Mahalo for all your great work! It's greatly appreciated!

Thanks very much for doing this and for your good work. Best of luck.

Thank you for doing such important work! We ALL deserve a clean environment to live in, and clean air to breathe!

In California as well as many states are defined circumscribed "cancer clusters" by freeways. Now more than ever we need to support the Clean Air Act.

Thank you Dr. Wang for fighting for us to help keep the air clean! We are with you!

Thank you for your efforts to help all people breathe!

We all have to fight for clean air. Keep up the good work.

I live in one of the nation's most air polluted cities and have learned that my lung health is equivalent to that of a moderate smoker-but I have never been a smoker!

Thank you Dr Wang for your actions and allowing me to have the opportunity to have a voice through supporting you.

Born in Los Angeles at a time when all we had was a little bit of "smog" to deal with. Then, as the years passed, more industry and corporations established themselves in the LA basin, bringing with them heavy pollution. The people complained, but did nothing. Now, more than 50 years later, the people are standing up to fight pollution; not only in the LA area, but the entire country.
It's about time that "actions speak louder than words." We must have The Clean Air Act or our future remains simply a question of how long before we are all gone!

Thank you!

Thank you for standing up for our health and the lives of our children. We must stop these greedy devils from wrecking our world!

We deserve clean air for all our citizens to breathe, especially our children, seniors, and those with chronic health issues. The science is clear about the devastating health effects of air pollution and what needs to be done to protect our community. The Clean Air Act must be fully implemented. Attempts to weaken this public health law or undermine the authority of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency should be rejected.

It's time to get our collective heads out of the sand and change our ways, AND we need strong leadership anmd policies to change our industry to really make it happen.

I live in one of the nation's most air polluted cities and was shocked to learn that my lung capacity and health is equivalent to that of a moderate smoker--and I have never smoked!

Our healthy future depends on clean air.

Thank you for your support of clean air!

Good luck in D.C.

Keep up the good work.
