200,000 people die EARLY DEATHS each year in the United States related to the burning of fossil fuels such as gasoline and other coal related products.

200,000 people die EARLY DEATHS each year in the United States related to the burning of fossil fuels such as gasoline and other coal related products.

This week marked a monumental change in the discussion regarding the health of our environment and ultimately your health and what you will end up spending on healthcare.

President Trump announced that the United States will be withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement, which prompted harsh criticism from not only within our country but also from the rest of the world.

In short, the Paris Climate Agreement was created as a pact between over 190 countries world wide as a pledge to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gas emissions come from a variety of sources including carbon dioxide from fossil fuel consumption (i.e., gasoline and other coal products) and are thought to accelerate global climate destruction. What does increased carbon dioxide levels mean for you and your family?

According to this study released by M.I.T. in 2014 fossil fuel combustion products (i.e., gasoline and coal products which lead to green house gases/carbon dioxide) accounts for over 200,000 PREMATURE DEATHS in the United States EACH YEAR.

What does this mean for you and your family?  Do you or your children suffer from asthma or other breathing problems? Have you or your family been diagnosed lung cancer? COPD? These as well as other deadly health conditions may be impacting you already.

How do we remedy this concern?

People strongly believe that diversification of our energy resources with a STRONG emphasis placed on renewable energy and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels (i.e., gasoline operated vehicles, electricity plants that rely upon coal) IS KEY. Reducing emissions from vehicles and creating more forested green space (plants eat carbon dioxide!) are also very helpful.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO SAVE YOUR HEALTH AND THAT OF YOUR FAMILY?

Vote out CORRUPT government officials like Chuck Fleischmann.
