Northeast states sue EPA over air pollution from Midwest

Several mostly Red states are producing massive amounts of pollution, which prevailing winds carry to the NE Blue states. The EPA's own research has shown this to be fact, but Trump sycophant Scott Pruitt refused to implement more stringent rules on these states.

The northeast states just need to start hauling it's trash and dumping it in the midwestern states. Its not as if they'll even notice as trashy as they already are.

They already do, Chicklet. New York, New Jersey and Maryland are among the top trash exporting states. Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin are among the top importers.

So, New York doesn't like their air and wants to blame us for it? Fine, then they can keep their trash and find somewhere else to dump it, at a much greater expense given land prices in NY and most east coast states.

Good to know the Red states are good for something.

Trash and filth mostly. Have you seen Missouri lately? Missouri pretty much defines white trash.
