MAYBE this will get the attention of those who don't care about animals?

I hope it will help. If anyone gets up a petition to thank Gina for saying it, I'll sign.

We knew this already at least 30 years ago, and why is nothing being done?

Thanks. I've noticed an increase in adults being diagnosed with asthma as well.

Noted Thanks Cher for posting. The EPA says such a huge reduction in smog and soot will prevent up to 6,600 premature deaths a year, 150,000 asthma attacks in children, 3,300 heart attacks, and 490,000 missed school and work days. These are huge numbers on the health aspect and I'm sure that this is only the tip of the iceburg. My great niece and grandson both suffer from asthma and when the attacks occur it is no walk in the park. All of this pollution must stop and soot, ash really needs to stop for the safety of the kids.

Very sad to say the least.

the loss of all life is sad....but maybe those who have so far been unwilling to do what is right to save life on our planet will wake up when they see this.........
