We have communities in Cincinnati uphill from industry and a major highway. They have much higher rates of asthma and other respiratory disease.

What an incredible presentation. So many people don't realize the intersectional nature of climate change on global health. To what degree can we still work to prevent, and to what degree or we looking to mitigate damage already done?
Yanick Perodin

Should municipalities start forcing citizens to move away from the coasts?
Keith Task
Hi Dr. Holder. Thank you so much for the powerful presentation. Governments around the world are talking about climate change, but I have not heard much from them about the direct health effects of climate change (as you have outlined). Do you know if governments (e.g. like our members of congress) are talking/addressing this, and might this be something we can directly bring up to them during our advocacy?
Meredith Vostrejs
Can you please share what you learned at COP26, and anything that gives you hope? How can we support action/advocacy at a global level?

Sadly FPL paid politicians in Tallahassee to prevent domestic solar, Greed!!

Unfortunately in Florida the role of local communities seems to not be taken into consideration at the State level. The reality is that all communities are different and many decisions should be allowed to be taken at that level. A stronger civil society is part of the key.
Chris King
This is an awesome org here in San Francisco that plants and maintains trees just in the way you are suggesting! https://www.fuf.net/

Petroleum companies are investing a lot more in plastics production vs oil exploration because they see the writing on the wall regarding dirty fossil fuels. Because plastics are so pervasive in the environment, already we see micro plastics in our water systems and in the air we breathe. What are the specific health impacts of micro plastics in our bodies?

About my tree question: Amen to your response. I plant trees for a living at Tree Fresno in CA… partnering with cities, counties, schools/districts, and even private property owners. We are funded primarily though the CAL FIRE Urban and Community Forestry Program (in the millions over the years) and the California Air Resources Board. Tree Fresno operates on the principle of Tree Equity (Ala American Forests). I just started a partnership with the Fresno Metro Black Chamber, and we began an education and workforce development program focused on the importance of urban trees. Interestingly, my initial pilot is comprised of leadership and participants in gun violence prevention programs from SW Fresno — I always say, once a PCV, always a PCV. — I want to add that volunteering with us to plant a tree, allows people to actively do something in their community to make the community a better place to live.
