What We Accomplished in 2022
Ever-Vigilant Against the Nuclear Threat
Throughout the year, PSR never rested in its mission to rally members and raise the needed voices of dissent, against the war, nuclear proliferation, and nuclear accidents. We kept abreast of the news in our chapter’s newsletters. Read a sampling here:
- The Nightmare of Nuclear Testing Lives On
- Action Alert: Inching Closer to Catastrophe
- The World ‘Failed to Address the Urgency of the Moment’
Climate and Health
The target market for the blend of hydrogen and natural gas — which is made up primarily of methane — includes heaters and gas stoves, which brings hydrogen directly into the home. PSR and others concerned about human health and the environment strongly object.
Throughout the year, PSR and PSR-Arizona have spread the word about hydrogen blending and the additional dangers that poses for our indoor environments. Using the hydrogen blend in gas stoves, for example, greatly increases the release of nitrogen oxides (NOx), which can exacerbate asthma and respiratory illnesses. It is also associated with higher rates of dementia in seniors.
