This public forum coincides with the launch of a powerful new report on coal and health.
The Hunter Community Environment Centre (HCEC) is working with the Climate and Health Alliance (CAHA) to launch the report that examines the adverse impacts on physical and psychological health associated with coal mining, transportation and production.
For the first time, this report quantifies the health costs associated with air pollution from coal sources in communities in the Hunter as well as the social costs of carbon associated with emissions produced from Hunter Valley coal.
Guest speakers include:
Francis Grey - principle economist, Economists at Large
Fiona Armstrong - Convenor of Climate and Health Alliance, and author of Coal and Health in the Hunter
John Lamb - Vigneron and President, Bulga-Milbrodale Progress Association
Come and hear more about the what the expansion of coal mining means for the health of our communities and importantly, what we can do about it.
