We took on tobacco; now, we need to take on coal.

At #RepowerHealth, we’ve written this article for Croakey, because as health professionals, we’re faced with the impacts of the climate emergency every day and we know we need to act. We took on tobacco and now we need to take on coal. We have a duty to act, in accordance with our professional ethics as health practitioners, for the sake of the planet, and for the future of humanity.
