Sydney Public Forum: coal and health

This public forum coincides with the launch of a powerful new report on coal and health. 

The Balmain Defenders of Our Land, Water, Future and Climate Change Balmain-Rozelle are hosting the evening to launch a new report authored by the Climate and Health Alliance (CAHA). The report examines the adverse impacts on physical and psychological health associated with coal mining, transportation and production.

This report quantifies the health costs associated with air pollution from coal sources in communities as well as the social costs of carbon associated with emissions produced using coal mining in the Hunter Valley as a case study. 

Guest speakers include:

Peter Sainsbury - Associate Professor, School of Public Health, University of Sydney 

Francis Grey - Principal Economist, Economists at Large

Fiona Armstrong - Convenor of Climate and Health Alliance, and author of Coal and Health in the Hunter

John Lamb - Grazier 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.
