  • Small Modular Reactors

    Some proponents of nuclear power are advocating for the development of small modular reactors as the solution to the problems facing large reactors, particularly soaring costs, safety, and radioactive waste. Unfortunately, small-scale reactors can’t solve these problems, and would likely exacerbate them. Read more »

  • Climate Chaos: How Coal Accelerates Climate Change

    The United States generates almost half its electricity by burning coal -- an outdated, toxic technology that spews pollutants into the air. Coal's carbon dioxide pollution is a major contributing factor to climate change. Coal also emits a host of toxic "conventional pollutants" -- mercury, nitrous oxides, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter and others -- that inflict severe damage on the body's major organ systems.

  • Fact Sheet: Vector-Borne and Water-Borne Diseases

    Climate change is acknowledged by scientists around the world to be a reality and to be caused primarily by human activity, especially the burning of fossil fuels. As the earth warms, the delicate balance of climate, weather events and life is disrupted. Consequences emerge that threaten health and, ultimately, survival. As the climate changes, vector-borne and water-borne diseases spread. Read more »

  • Fact Sheet: Heat's Deadly Effects

    Climate change is acknowledged by scientists around the world to be a reality and to be caused primarily by human activity, especially the burning of fossil fuels. As the earth warms, the delicate balance of climate, weather events and life is disrupted. Consequences emerge that threaten health and, ultimately, survival. Climate change is likely to increase the frequency of "extreme heat events" or heat waves. Read more »

  • Climate Chaos: Health Implications of Climate Change

    As we continue to burn fossil fuels, the atmosphere warms, and world climate changes. Higher temperatures, changes in precipitation patterns, and rising sea levels lead to more frequent heat waves; more frequent intense storms; increased flooding; in some places, increased drought; loss of shoreline and greater risk from storms in coastal and low-lying areas. These bring increased risk of disease, injury, nutritional deficit, and death. Read more »
