Climate Change Action

In November of 2008, PSR Arizona sponsored and organized the first Health Effects of Climate Change symposium, with participation of experts from the CDC, University of Arizona, and many community stakeholders.  A DVD of that event is available through the National Office of PSR.

PSR Arizona organized the Climate Smart Southwest conference held September 20-21 of 2013 to address the public health vulnerabilities to climate change in our region and for our SW communities. The conference was attended by over 400 people and representatives of 45 co-sponsors which included 6 national environmental organizations, and speakers included climate scientists, public health faculty and officials, National and International environmental leaders, and representatives of Native American and our Mexican border communities.

PSR Arizona collaborates with other organizations to facilitate community wide planning/workshops/forums for education about and addressing climate change.   We have City appointed PSR representation and participation as members of the City of Tucson's Climate Change (Advisory) Committee that is charged with the responsibilities of developing a climate change mitigation and adaptation plan for the City of Tucson.  In this role we emphasize the Health Effects of Climate Change and the critical role of public health.

We are available and are called to speak on the health effects of climate change and environmental toxins (including those produced by energy production and transportation) in various community and political forums. 

Action Alerts

  • It's time to put our health before polluter profits

    Climate change is endangering us now, harming public health and causing damage to our communities from extreme weather events. Tell your senators that rolling back methane pollution standards, a key step in our fight against climate change, is unacceptable!

  • Tell Congress: Protect our Health -- Oppose extreme anti-health bills

    Congress should ensure that federal agencies enforce laws that protect our water, air quality and public health--not curb the power of those agencies to carry out their mission. Tell your representative you oppose the REINS Act and the Midnight Rule Relief Act of 2017.
