The article reports on the steps taken by the mining industry to improve air quality. John Cline, an environmental and energy law attorney, said that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is making changes to emissions allowed under the National Ambient Air Quality Standards and this could directly affect the coal mines. The National Mining Association is taking measures to join in the debate and is identifying dust-control practices. Experts said that the efforts should help miners against activists who argue that the mining harms the environment.
