Harvard Talks Health Benefits of Carbon Reduction

Yesterday we posted comments from the Virginia Asthma Coalition supporting the EPA’s new clean power plant rules, arriving at that support from an air quality/health perspective.

To further support that line of thinking, here is the work of some Harvard researchers that further delves into the links between carbon emissions and human health:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the nation’s first-ever carbon pollution standards for existing power plants on June 2, 2014. Scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health, School of Public Health at Boston University, and Syracuse University teamed up on a three-part study to analyze the impact of different policy options for power plant carbon standards on clean air and public health.
