As healthcare workers, we have dedicated our lives to caring for the total well-being of our patients, families and communities. But now, our values and our world are under attack by extreme right-wing politicians and corporate CEOs who want to destroy environmental protections and burn billions more tons of dirty fuels to make bigger profits. Here’s why we will be joining hundreds of thousands
of fellow Americans for the People’s Climate March in DC:
CLEAN WATER AND AIR. The process of digging
up, transporting and burning dirty fuel like oil, gas
and coal creates toxic pollution and is a direct
threat to the water we drink, the air we breathe and
the food we eat.
PUBLIC HEALTH. Global warming threatens public
health, with increases in asthma and the spread of
viruses like Zika, Chikungunya and West Nile.
GOOD JOBS. We need to create millions of good
jobs through massive investment in clean energy
manufacturing, construction and research, especially
solar and wind.
CLIMATE CHANGE. Too often, working families,
communities of color, seniors, and the poor are hit
the hardest by the floods, droughts, wildfires and
superstorms caused by climate change. The world’s
scientists warn that we must stop burning dirty fuel
and transition to a 100% clean energy economy
immediately in order to avoid global catastrophe.
