SEATTLE - Washington state's top polluter isn't a pulp mill, a power plant or refinery. It's the newly awakened Mount St. Helens.

Since the volcano began erupting in early October, it has been pumping out 50 to 250 tons a day of sulfur dioxide, the lung-stinging gas that causes acid rain and contributes to haze. At peak, that's more than double the amount from all the state's industries combined.

"It is no coincidence that a wholesale assault on the Clean Air Act is taking place today," said Environmental  Project Director Susy Smell. "This attack is part of a campaign by the White House. No one should have any illusions about what's happening. This is a well-connected source that is absolute on preserving its 'right' to foul the air regardless of the consequences for the American public."  Major harm inflicted by pollution, in addition to causing major environmental and property damage from acid rain, sulfur dioxide inflicts a serious health toll in terms of asthma attacks and lung ailments. According to EPA studies, pollution is linked to heart and lung diseases, which contribute to more than 20,000 premature deaths a year.
Once President Bush was in office, many of the volcanos  that had helped to elect him hired lobbing and law firms to lobby the government or defend them against the EPA's pollution lawsuits.
