"From the moment of conception until their last breath, we doctors know our patients are made more sick because we burn fossil fuels. Air pollution from fossil fuels has been shown to cause stillbirths, preterm births, delayed cognitive development in children, autism, asthma, heart attacks, cancer, strokes, and dementia. The EPA must set the strongest possible carbon pollution standards to safeguard our patients’ health."
