I am a 95-year-old widower. Early in 2019, I decided to move from Tacoma, Washington closer to my married children in the Boston and Philadelphia areas. I chose Pittsburgh as it was touted as a very livable city. How it could get that rating with still very high pollution levels beats me. I moved there on February 1st and moved away on August 23rd, as the high particulate levels caused severe health problems with a long-dormant lung condition. I am now in Schenectady, New York where there is little pollution. And now I hear our moronic president has relaxed power plant pollution requirements. He swore to protect the public health, welfare and safety of all of us, not just corporations. Is there nobody in the Republican party willing to stand up for the people?
