Kaiser Permanente warns of Climate Change

Climate Change ‘Will Impact Our Ability To Provide Quality Health Care’

That quote from an KP executive, one of the largest health providers, stated on June 15, 2012 that they have already launched a plan to reduce their own carbon footprint as much as they can ASAP.  They also said the evidence is clear that the climate is rapidly changing.  Looming rising temperatures, water shortages, and the resulting international conflicts will reduce their ability to serve.


  1. Do you think this is an excuse to deliver less care? A warning that they will be charging more? Of course the climate is changing. Everyone knows that already.

  2. Rubye Jack; Your taking the next step is interesting. For sure the rates are going up, and they did say that as well. l do not agree that every one knows the climate is changing, or if they do they pretend otherwise, just look at Senator Inhof as exhibit #1.

    1. Darrel,
      Jim Inhofe is an idiot. I wonder - How much money from Big Oil/Coal/Energy is Inhofe on the take for? What also confuses me is why believing in climate change and global warming is seen my the thumper right as going against God.

      After five years in Oklahoma I left there convinced that it was the most backwards-ass place on earth. Now, Squatlo is making me think that the Volunteer State owns that title.


    2. Ron, Inhofe last year swimming in Grand Lake of the Cherokees contacted a water borne illness landing him in hospital. This due to extreme temps. Up to now this germ only thrived in farm ponds and stagnant creeks, but now even large bodies of water are so hot they get algae blooms and micro-critters flourish that kill dogs and deer that drink it, and swimmers and fishermen if untreated. Well, he lived through it, but still the money he is paid for speaking for fossil fuel is more important to him than the sportsmen of Oklahoma.

  6. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
