Help make climate history!
June 3, 2014
Climate change has been called "the greatest public health challenge of the 21st century." It threatens our health, our food and our water supplies. It contributes to conflict and war. And right now, we have a historic opportunity to reduce that threat.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a rule to limit carbon pollution from power plants, the largest single source of this greenhouse gas. This rule can lead our nation into an exciting transformation of our energy system and put us on track for worldwide reductions in climate change.
This is the biggest, most promising climate proposal in years, and PSR will be working all summer to show the EPA (and the rule's enemies) that there is massive public support for reducing climate change. That's why I need your help.
I'm asking all of PSR's members to write a letter to the editor today. It doesn’t have to be complex and you don’t have to be an expert. Just use our easy online form and fact sheet to tell your local newspaper that:
- Climate change is a threat to our health -- here, now, in our communities.
- As a health professional (or if you're not, as a PSR member), why you are concerned.
- The magnitude of the threat requires bold national action. That's why you want EPA to pass a strong, health-protective rule.
Let's seize the moment. Explain to America why our health and our children's health depend on firm action to cut carbon pollution.

What chemicals are in the food we eat? Chemicals are used in every step of the process that puts food on our table: production, harvesting, processing, packing, transport, marketing and consumption and can be dangerous to our health. Read more »
Fracking: Harm on the Farm
Chemical exposures that harm farm animals and wild animals raise concern about health risks for people living near fracking sites, as the animals use the same water and breathe the same air as humans. Another, indirect concern for human health also exists: in multiple known cases of chemical exposure, cows continued to produce dairy and meat for human consumption, although it remained untested for chemical contaminants.
