In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, physician, electrical engineer and Heartland policy advisor Charles Battig joins Environment & Climate News managing editor H. Sterling Burnett to discuss the Obama administration’s new ozone rules.
Battig discusses the bureaucratic impulse to overregulate. He breaks down these new regulations and explains why they will have a high cost, but only produce very limited benefits. Contrary to the administration’s claims, ozone is not causing asthma. The real negative health impacts will actually be the result of these rules. The ozone regulations will raise energy and food costs which may be devastating for the those living in poverty.
