The agriculture dust rules have proven to be a myth, but that doesn't mean dust isn't a real issue.

Out west where I live half time, where people used to go for the clean air, my asthma is worse than in the relative jungle of Minnesota.

Why? All the roads that are built to enable oil and gas drilling. It's not only degraded the air quality, it's helping reduce the snow pack that's critical to the West's scarce water supplies.

We could face a dust bowl again, the way things are going, and it won't be pretty.
