Medical Society Consortium Comments on The National Environmental Policy Act Proposed Updates

March 10, 2020

"Climate change places everyone at risk, but people who live near major highways or in fence line communities are already breathing fumes or experiencing poor air quality that contribute to poor health and puts them on the front lines of negative impacts of climate change.  Some of these adverse effects can occur within the timeline of a single pregnancy; some can have a cumulative affect on the development of a child’s lungs or the health of local residents over a period of years. Unless addressed, climate change exposure would perpetuate the environmental injustice that has already burdened under-represented people and communities."
