Climate Reality and Your Health

Per research by UCS, come 2020, the projected 2 ppb ozone increase could lead to an additional 2.8 million respiratory ailments, 994,000 missed school days, and 3,700 seniors and 1,400 infants hospitalized for respiratory problems. These additional health impacts will also hurt the finances of nearly every segment of the population: in 2020 alone, the 2 ppb-climate penalty on ozone could result in $5.4 billion in additional health costs. Both ozone pollution and climate change are caused in large part by burning fossil fuels. To schedule a free presentation on Climate Reality, contact me at [email protected].
