Rolling back auto emission standards would double pollution nationwide by 2025 when compared to the safety standards now in effect.

Worse, if the federal standard is lowered, Maine and more than a dozen other states which now have a better safety standard than the current federal standard would be forced to live under a dirtier federal standard.

This is not acceptable. We cannot go backward, because adding more pollution to our one and only world is killing us and the planet. Why is this even being considered?
