Health Impacts of Gas Appliances Webinar


On February 24th, 2022, Oregon PSR and our partners at Southern Oregon Climate Action Now (SOCAN) presented an online webinar exploring the health impacts of gas appliances.

More than 60 organizations collaborated on a report titled Methane Gas: Health, Safety, and Decarbonization to set the record straight on the environmental and health impacts of so-called "natural" gas, which powers appliances in many of our homes. Three of the featured speakers are co-authors of this report.

Featured speakers included:

  • Melanie Plaut, MD (Oregon PSR Healthy Climate Action Team member & 350PDX Fossil Fuel Resistance Team Co-Coordinator)
  • Theodora Tsongas, PhD, MS (Oregon PSR Healthy Climate Action Team member)
  • Ann Turner, MD (Oregon PSR Healthy Climate Action Team member)
  • Samantha Hernandez (Oregon PSR Climate Justice Organizer)
