Kentucky

According to the EPA, climate-related healthcare costs in Kentucky will include greater instances of asthma and other respiratory diseases that are made worse by high temperatures and greater concentrations of ground-level ozone. In 2022, lobbyists for fossil fuel lobbyists represented 34 different healthcare interests such as hospitals, insurance companies, and associations of healthcare professionals whose customers and patients will bear these costs.

32 of these healthcare interests share lobbyists with the coal industry. Kentucky has been one of the top three coal-producing states for decades and the dangers to human health from mining, transporting, and burning coal include respiratory disease and hearing loss for miners, and particulate matter accumulating in the heart, lungs, and nervous system of people exposed to gaseous coal emissions.
