EPA Turns 35 Today
Since created by President Nixon in 1970, EPA has been instrumental in creating a cleaner, healthier environment. Between 1970 and 2004, total emissions of the six major air pollutants dropped by 54 percent at the same time that the gross domestic product increased 187 percent, energy consumption increased 47 percent, and U.S. population grew by 40 percent.
