  • Children, Teens, and the Japan Disaster

    As we all know, Japan is suffering through a horrific disaster caused by the 9.0 earthquake, tsunami, and probable meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear power plants. Unfortunately, this crisis will not end any time soon. I have already heard a variety of fears that young clients have expressed as they grapple with this tragedy. Children and teens who have, themselves, experienced traumas and/or losses will be more susceptible to what has happened in Japan. The amount of news that is watched on television may also increase the anxiety level of children and teens. Read more »

  • 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    The United States generates almost half its electricity by burning coal -- an outdated, toxic technology that spews pollutants into the air.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 »
