Might not be able to meet tougher standards •  We will save lives and reduce the burden of illness Saying it is reacting to a court order, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has finalized an update to its national air quality standards for harmful fine particle pollution, know to technicians by its shorthand, PM2.5.

    These standards are supported and initiated by large corporations that can afford any financial burden they might cost. It's just chalked up as the Cost of doing business. What it does is create an impossible barrier for small businesses, both new businesses trying to raise capitol to compete, and existing businesses that are barely getting by in these economic times, that stuff like this just flushes them down the financial drain.

    We like to dance a little victory jig every time we hear these stories, thinking. Fuck yeah! We got Masanto, Dow, Dupont, ect. ect. ect.
    But in reality you're getting a pink slip when you show up for work Monday at Jane's Old Fashioned Smoked BBQ, because she can't afford a 3 million dollar smoke scrubber on her $300 rib smoker.
