GLRPPR Sector Resource: Energy Efficiency and Health
Energy Efficiency and Health
Lowering the amount of energy we waste reduces our need to burn coal and other fossil fuels to generate electricity. Those reductions in pollution mean big gains for health, as pollutants from fossil fuel combustion contribute to four of the leading causes of death in the United States: cancer, chronic lower respiratory diseases, heart disease, and stroke. Energy efficiency benefits health.
