350 Austin May Open Meeting
May 21, 2019 @ 6:50 pm - 8:30 pm
From 350 Austin –
We are very fortunate to have a special guest speaker at our May open meeting. UT’s Professor Jules Elkins will be presenting research on the health impacts of coal. Dr. Elkins’s research and teaching is in environmental health and healthy indoor environments. She is particularly interested in low-dose chemical exposures, especially during the period from preconception to early childhood.
The FCP is a prime example of the intersectionality of the climate crisis. It reflects the racial, economic, and social injustices of the fossil fuel industry that are well established. This plant is causing great harm to the most vulnerable and those least responsible for the existential threat of climate change.
