Obama's clean air rules
I used to wheeze when I lived in the big cities of the US, or visited them.
Nowadays, the only time I use my inhaler is visiting Manila.
So the clean air rules will help.
However, in rural areas, people heat with wood stoves, so if the electricity rate goes up, that means more use of wood stoves, which pollute the outside air while bringing in fungus etc. to cause asthma in their kids. So it's not going to help everyone.
