Climate Resources & Reports
We Highlight the Health Hazards Associated with Fossil Fuel Driven Climate Change
GBPSR has been a medical community leader in addressing the climate crisis and environmental health since 1992, when GBPSR member and Nobel laureate Dr. Eric Chivian organized a groundbreaking conference Human Health and Environment at MIT. We have co-authored landmark reports from “Death by Degrees” (2001) that looked at the health impacts of climate disruption in Massachusetts to our 2019 reports analyzing the impact of fossil fuel development in Weymouth, MA on climate, safety and health.
Our seminal research reports on the reproductive health risks from pesticides and environmental risks to the elderly have provided the scientific groundwork for advocacy campaigns to protect health and have helped change both public policies and clinical practice.
We have educated over 10,000 health professionals through our educational programming and outreach. We have developed clinical tools on environment and health, such as our Pediatric Environmental Health Toolkit, endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, featured in a five-state training program, and subsequently made available as an online CME course developed in conjunction with the US Centers for Disease Control’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
