Phasing Out Coal — A Healthy Decision

Sep 30 2014 - 2:30pm to 5:30pm

Coal-fired plants make people sick and die, particularly children and those with chronic illnesses, and they cost society huge amounts of money desperately needed for other purposes.
—Dr Alan Lockwood, MD, The Silent Epidemic, MIT, 2012

In Alberta alone coal contributes to over 100 fatalities and more than 4,000 asthma symptom days every year (Alberta study here). What are the impacts of coal on human health? How can Alberta include health issues related to burning coal in its energy strategy? Read more about Phasing Out Coal — A Healthy Decision
