120 Top U.S. Health Orgs Urge That EPA Proceed With Global Warming Pollution Curbs

APHA: Protect the public’s health by letting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) move ahead with urgently needed new rules to curb global warming pollution. That’s the message of a new joint letter from 120 of America’s top public health organizations and experts, including the American Public Health Association (APHA), the American Nurses Association (ANA), the American Academy of Pediatrics (APA), the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Lung Association (ALA).

"The letter notes that preserving the authority of the EPA to regulate global warming emissions is of paramount concern to the health of “children, older adults, those with serious health conditions and the most economically disadvantaged.”
