A new study has been released disclosing the obvious: that our life spans have benefited from our cleaner air laws we have passed.  The study put some concrete numbers behind their findings, elaborating that reducing pollution from cars, power plants, and factories is responsible for 15% of the 2.72 years of extra longevity we’ve seen in the US since the 1980’s.  Another thing to point to in case somoene tries to tell you that further regulating this kind of pollution isn’t worth it.
