Post Carbon Fellow Dr. Cindy Parker was quoted in this article on offshore wind in the Colesville Patch.
From the article:

In addition, it will improve health. Dr. Cindy Parker of Chesapeake Physicians for Social Responsibility notes that Maryland has the 4th highest child asthma rate in the country, and that “coal-powered plants cause preventable asthma attacks.”
