Clearing the Air: The Impact of the Clean Air Act on Technology.
Redmond, John C., Ed.; And Others
This compendium has been prepared to summarize the notable aspects of the U. S. Clear Air Amendments of 1970 for members of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and others. The work is not a complete explanation of the law and all of its ramifications; it is, rather, an expedient means to gain rapid insight into the more significant portions of the legislation and its impact on technology, and in particular on the field of electrical and electronics engineering. Introductory material gives a history of previous air pollution laws up to the 1970 law while the major portion of the volume is a series of reprinted articles on air pollution. Articles examine, describe, and/or detail the general nature of air pollution, effects on the public health, relationship to the generation of electric power, the depletion of oxygen in the atmosphere, present and proposed instruments and techniques needed for detection and analysis, sources of pollution from automobiles, business and technical points of view, excerpts from the President's 1971 environmental program, political forces affecting federal air pollution legislation, preparation of state implementation plans, and national primary and secondary ambient air quality standards.
