(St. Paul) - A new report from National Wildlife Federation finds that a number of wildlife species important to hunters and anglers in Minnesota are harmed by toxic air pollution and climate change. The report comes on the same week the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing long-awaited proposed rules to limit mercury, acid rain, and other toxic emissions from power plants. Mercury is one of the most common and toxic power plant emissions in Minnesota and causes a variety of health disorders for fish, mammals, birds, and other species.
The Minnesota Conservation Federation, Trout Unlimited, Fresh Energy, Izaak Walton League and Audubon are calling for members of Congress to support the updating of air pollution limits under the Clean Air Act to rein in the ongoing damage to our nation's wildlife and natural heritage. Congress is currently considering several proposals that would severely weaken the Clean Air Act. The lead bill authored by Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (H.R. 910) has been co-sponsored by Minnesota Congressman Collin Peterson and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. The bill will be marked up in the Energy and Commerce Committee on Tuesday, March 15.
