To do so we need to extract ourselves from the use of oil, gas and coal, implementingcradle to cradle clean energy systems in concert with conservation measures. Oil wells and pipelines will not create a clean energy future. Walkable cities, expanded bike routes, solar power and local organic sustainable food systems address not only climate change and air pollution but also the major health threats we see as physicians such as asthma, cancer, heart disease and obesity. Industry, governments and individuals alike need to think about transforming their habits of consumption and travel. Together we can preserve a healthy, beautiful, livable planet.
