Clearing the Air: Addressing Health Disparities and Uncovering Social Factors in PM2.5 Pollution Exposure

A new study led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health suggests that implementing stronger regulations to lower levels of fine particulate air pollutants (PM2.5) would benefit the health of all Americans, with Black Americans and low-income Americans likely to reap the most benefits, including a lower risk of premature death.

Powering a sustainable future: the rise of solar panels and wind turbines

The development of solar panels and wind turbines in the 20th century has had a significant impact on the energy sector. In the past, fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas were the primary sources of energy. However, the increasing demand for energy coupled with the rising concerns about the environmental impact of fossil fuels has led to the development of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.

Revving towards a greener future: the rise of electric cars and the reduction of gasoline dependence

The widespread adoption of electric cars can have several positive impacts on different aspects of society. Firstly, it can lead to a reduction in air pollution, as electric cars produce no emissions at the tailpipe. This can lead to improved public health, as air pollution has been linked to a range of health issues including asthma, lung cancer, and heart disease.
