Take Action

Tell President Obama and the US DOT to stop oil trains carrying diluted tar sands and fracked shale oil from the Bakken formation—both are more toxic, more explosive, and more carbon-intensive than conventional crude.

Exploring the Health Impacts of Climate Change

June 17, 2014
Seattle, Washington

Time: 6:30 - 7:30 pm
Location: UW School of Public Health (Health Sciences Building, T-Wing, room 739)

"Climate change is the most serious unaddressed public health threat facing the planet."

On Tuesday, June 17th, Catherine Thomasson, MD, Executive Director of Physicians for Social Responsibility, will discuss human health impacts of climate change and the need for advocating for solutions at the local, state and federal level.
She will also speak about the recently released draft EPA carbon rule on existing power plants, the largest proposed federal action on climate change to date.

This event is open to the public.
