Replacing fossil fuels is a win-win-win
Climate change is one of the gravest threats to human health and survival. As a family physician, and member of Physicians For Social Responsibility, I laud President Obama's commitment to fight climate change, particularly given the health threats of climate change, including increasing ground-level ozone (which worsens asthma and causes permanent lung damage), extreme weather events causing flooding, and causing harm to the food supply.
Replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy is a win-win-win: It reduces toxic air pollution, slows climate change, and creates new jobs for American workers.
We can't wait any longer to take these concrete, necessary steps to protect our children's health and future.
