The climate of health
The damage we do to the world is eventually visited upon us in the form of hunger, thirst, physical disease, mental illness and other health issues. Here, we explore those consequences and how we can lessen their severity through global emissions reductions. We teach our children to treat others as they want to be treated, but what about the world around them? As the dominant force driving ecological change, the damage we do to natural life-support systems is eventually visited upon us, perhaps most dramatically in our health.
