Georgia Clean Air
Reducing Harmful Air Pollution
Do you think you breathe clean air? Think again. The American Lung Association's State of the Air tool shows us that Georgia's air is not very healthy. Enter in your county. The results might surprise you!
So, how is GreenLaw working to improve these results?
What Does GreenLaw Do To Prevent Air Pollution?GreenLaw launched The Georgia Clean Air Project in November 2000. The project aims to clean up the dirtiest coal-fired power plants, prevent construction of new coal-fired power plants and encourage the development of renewable energy in Georgia. By forcing industrial polluters to pay for the environmental costs of energy production, we can create a cost-competitive market for renewable energy. GreenLaw uses the tools provided by Congress when it enacted the federal Clean Air Act.
