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.

Calling all doctors: Training call to lead health/climate change presentation

November 12, 2012

Time: 5:00 pm Pacific/8:00 pm Eastern

Want to lead presentations on the affect of climate change on public health?

What impact does climate change have on our health? Quite a lot, actually. Whether it's heat stroke from hotter temperatures, respiratory ailments from longer allergy seasons or increased incidents of mosquito-borne diseases, global warming affects our health. Policy-makers and the public must take this into consideration as we weigh steps to reduce the risk of climate change. If you are a medical doctor and would like to lead presentations regarding the health effects of climate change -- who better to do that? --  join a training call with Dr. Wendy Ring from Physicians for Social Responsibility this Monday evening at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific. Email Steve.Valk@citizensclimatelobby.org for details to connect with the call.
