Taking steps to curb climate change would have a big impact on public health 29.8.2014 MinnPost
CC/Flickr/NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center Too often, health impacts are left out of the conversation on climate change. That is unfortunate, because climate change threatens our ability to protect Minnesotans against the dangers of air pollution and increased allergens and asthma triggers linked to warmer summers, extreme weather and smoke from wildfires. This is especially true of the most vulnerable Minnesotans — the young, the elderly and those living with lung disease. Power plants are the largest stationary source of greenhouse gases in the United States, and are a major source of air pollution in Minnesota. Placing carbon limits on existing power plants will not only reduce greenhouse gases, it will also reduce the amount of particulate pollution these plants emit. The negative health impacts of particulate pollution are well documented and include exacerbating lung diseases and causing cancer or premature death. We know that temperature is a factor in ozone pollution, one of the major types of ...

With This Decade's Climate Policy, Expect More Warming Than if Nothing Was Done at All 27.8.2014 Truthout.com

Since 1986, we have emitted as much carbon dioxide as we emitted in the prior 236 years, yet climate policy has only become approximately 13 percent more stringent. New knowledge suggests currently proposed policy will likely cause more warming in critical short-term time frames than if nothing was done at all.
