Court rules ozone standards fail to protect forests
Central Valley Business Times : July 23, 2013

  Summary:  A federal appeals court ruled that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency violated the Clean Air Act when in 2008 it ignored the unanimous recommendation of its independent science advisors and set smog standards that do not assure the protection of forests and vegetation from ozone damage. Unfortunately, the same court also decided to uphold a weak health standard for ozone—which has been found to worsen asthma and other lung diseases—that these same scientific advisors had found failed to protect public health.

“The decision is a mixed bag for people in California,” said Earthjustice attorney David Baron. “The court held that EPA violated the law in failing to adopt a standard to protect forests and trees from ozone damage. On the other hand, the court upheld EPA’s 2008 health standard for ozone, even though the agency’s science advisors unanimously said those standards weren’t strong enough. EPA must now take strong action to repair the damage.”
