Protecting Children’s Health October 2019 Booklet

Protecting Children’s Health

From the executive summary: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was created first of all created in 1970.  All with the mission to protect human health and also the environment. In 1995, EPA began to focus explicitly on the unique vulnerabilities and needs of children with respect to the air they breathe and the water they drink. Most importantly and exposures to chemicals. For they all face environmental health hazards in both the natural and built environments. Because children’s neurological, immunological, respiratory, digestive, and other systems are still developing.

So, they are more vulnerable than adults to environmental risk factors.

In many cases, their responses are also substantially different. Why these going green links are essential.

For that’s qualitatively and quantitatively.  Especially from those exhibited by adults. In conclusion, the EPA is committed to assuring newborns have the best possible start in life.  That’s by seeking to decrease exposures during vulnerable life stages. Finally, and improve children’s environmental health outcomes.

Pittsburgh Park

For as I mentioned before:

None other than The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy with the City of Pittsburgh and the Trust for Public Land.  They were pleased to announce Pittsburgh’s park system has jumped ahead of several major U.S. cities.  Thereby taking 23rd place out of 100.

The ranking is an increase from 39th in 2017 when announced in 2018.

For this significant growth in overall park scoring is based on the Trust for Public Land’s 7th annual ParkScore index. Each year, the Trust for Public Land assigns the 100 largest cities in the U.S. a “park score” based on park acreage, facilities, investment, and resident access to local parks. The Trust for Public Land’s ParkScore index is the most comprehensive tool available for evaluating park access and quality.

Green Campuses

College of the Atlantic and their Green Commitment is immense.  That’s from global politics to also campus waste. For I mean COA students engage on all levels. With high marks for regional and organic foods.  As well as a strong culture of waste diversion.  Finally with a broad commitment to sustainability-focused academics makes College of the Atlantic takes the #1 spot in The Princeton Review’s 2022 Guide to Green Colleges. It is also the sixth year in a row for COA to be named the greenest school.

In addition, with a focus on sustainability is therefore at the heart of COA’s human-ecological education. All which explores humans’ relationships. Those with their natural, social, and also built environments. Over the school’s 50-year history, this focus has enabled student-led initiatives. Most importantly to divest from fossil fuels, ban single-use plastics, and strive toward a zero-waste campus. I mean, that’s among others.

UCLA Green Campus

Sustainability at UCLA is an effort that brings together the work of students, faculty, and staff alike.

Since 2004 the Sustainability Committee. For that’s comprised of representatives from across campus, has provided the vehicle for leadership and coordination for this effort.

More recently, dedicated staff members have been able to expand the scope of the program.  Also and pursue long-range planning and implementation. UCLA has since received a number of awards for its sustainability efforts.

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), a nonprofit research organization.  One develops transformative policies with tax credit programs to other vehicles to get it done.  All to reduce energy waste and combat also climate changeWith our independent analysis, they aim to build a vibrant and equitable economy.  So, that’s one one that uses energy more productively.  Also, reduces costs and protects the environment.  Finally and promotes the health, safety, and well-being of everyone.

ACEEE was founded in 1980 by leading energy researchers.  All who were concerned about U.S. dependence on foreign oil. Since then, by significantly improving energy efficiency across all sectors.  Now the United States has halved its energy, moreover its’ use.  That’s relative to the size of the economy. Efficiency now saves more energy each year than the nation uses.  I mean from any other single energy resource. It also saves money and creates jobs.  Finally it improves grid reliability and by reducing harmful emissions.  Yes, for it cleans the air and improves people’s health.

Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, (AASHE) website is administered by Oak Ridge National Laboratory.  All for the U.S. Department of Energy and also the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. They collect data from every automotive manufacturer and make it easy for you.  Driving your vehicle can yield both greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from your vehicle’s tailpipe and GHG emissions,  All related to the production of the fuel used to power your vehicle. For example, activities associated with fuel production such as feedstock extraction, feedstock transport to a processing plant.  Also the conversion of feedstock to motor fuel and, as well as distribution of the motor fuel.  For they can all produce GHG emissions.  So besides electric vehicle tax credit or credits, this is essential work. continue reading »
