We have received a letter from concerned community activists living near Boston's Logan International Airport. They ask for our support for bill HR 3938 which directs the FAA to collaborate with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in providing a report on the health impacts of air traffic noise and pollution.
While such a Study is clearly useful there are existing studies done in Europe that document health effects at sound levels close to what those living near the Potomac River experience every day. The Administrative Petition the Coalition sent to the FAA in May, 2016 summarizes existing studies at p1-3. You can find it here.
