Code Black: Coal's Assault on America's Health Campaign

Coal-fired power plants are the leading global warming culprit in the U.S., accounting for more than 30 percent of our nation's carbon dioxide emissions. They also are one of the nation's largest sources of air pollutants that damage cardiovascular and respiratory health and threaten healthy child development. Particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, mercury, and more than 50 other air toxics are among the dangerous mix of pollutants spewed from the smokestacks of coal plants. Despite this poor environmental record, energy companies have proposed building more than 100 new coal-fired power plants across the country.

Safe Energy

The Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) Safe Energy program focuses on protecting public health, taxpayer dollars, and national security by preventing the construction of expensive, dirty, and dangerous new nuclear reactors.  More than sixty years since the first civilian nuclear reactor was turned on, we find a mature industry still dependent on government subsidies and economically unsound, mired in unresolved safety issues, and a threat to public health. In order to address climate change, protect public health and meet our energy needs economically, we must stop subsidizing dirty, dangerous nuclear power and focus on real solutions with renewable energy and efficiency.
