Smog or Jobs? The Impact of Tighter Ozone Pollution Control on Health and the US Economy

21 September 2011
Hosted By: the Harvard School of Public Health

The Harvard School of Public Health held a webcast on 21 September 2011 in light of President Obama's recent request that the US Environmental Protection Agency withdraw draft air quality standards that would have tightened ozone pollution controls. President Obama cited "the importance of reducing regulatory burdens and regulatory uncertainty" as the US economy recovers. NERA Senior Vice President Dr. W. David Montgomery joined a panel of experts to discuss the public health and economic controversy sparked by this decision.

A recording of this webcast is available on the Harvard School of Public Health website.
