5 Ways Dads Can Fight For Clean Air

By†Lori Popkewitz Alper

We are†Moms Clean Air Force. We are coalition of Moms†and Dads filled with passion and dedication in the fight for cleaner air. We have an innate drive to do everything within our power to protect our children. Everyone has the right to clean air.

Iím a mom of three young boys and Iím concerned about their ability to breathe clean air over their lifetime. In addition to the many moms and women who fight hard for non-toxic environments, I feel fortunate to be surrounded by dads and men who play an equally important role in creating healthy environments without harmful chemicals for our children. My husband, father, friends and neighbors all have a vested interest in the health of our children and all children.

Dads have the right to go to bat for clean air.

Dads have reason to be concerned about the air they are breathing. Air pollution can lead to a wide array of health issues including†decreasing the quality and quantity of sperm.

Their children are also affected by air pollutants. Boys tend to suffer more than girls from many childrenís health issues brought on by air pollution, including some†childhood cancers, asthma, learning and behavioral disorders, and some types of birth defects.

Fatherís Day is an opportunity to make a difference.

This Fatherís Day is a great time for fathers and fathers-to-be to remember the important role they can play in the fight for clean air.

The writer should be congratulated for presenting common sense realistic suggestions that would actually help reduce a real-world problem - air pollution.

Too many environmental writers just rant about the Canadian oil sands ruining the whole planet, or some other incredible fairy tale that suits their political agenda.
