Program Description


Gary Leabman, a Climate Reality representative, will look at how the rapidly changing climate is affecting health and healthcare. Allergists are busier than ever, and asthma is affecting more people. Cases of COPD are on the rise. Deaths and cancer are prevalent in communities near coal-fired power plants. And these are just air-quality issues. Water and land degradation issues are plentiful. Many cases of depression and PTSD are mental health effects of this climate crisis. This presentation will provide information to make important decisions for yourself and on behalf of future generations.
