Heat Waves In Eastern US Will Become Deadlier says a new US National Institute of Health study, reports Brian Bienkowski at Environmental Health News. Heat waves will kill about 10 times more people in eastern US by 2060 than they did in 2000, researchers project. The poor, the elderly and the very young will suffer the most. Personally, folks, I suffered a minor heat stroke this past spring on a hike and it has heightened my sensitivity to hot weather. No one should have to experience this, yet many will and have far worse reactions.
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2 years!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
