Clearing the Air Over Ozone President Obama has put the brakes on a plan to combat smog. He reasoned that tougher clean air standards would burden businesses during difficult economic times. But environmental advocates say health benefits of cleaner air would outweigh any negatives. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll examine the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed national ozone standard and discuss how it might have affected northeast Ohio. Tuesday morning at 9:00.
