Singleton Public Forum: Coal and Health

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. 

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.

    A very important discussion that has to be had – how is the industrialisation of the Upper Hunter affecting the health of the community. Mike Baird said on the radio today that the postives of the coal and power industries outweigh the negatives of the health effects. I dont think he has read this report!
