Under the Weather: The Health Consequences of a Changing Climate
Date: Friday July 12, 2013
There is scientific consensus that the EarthÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s climate is changing: surface temperatures are rising, snow and ice are melting, sea levels are rising and climate is increasingly variable. These changes are expected to have substantial impacts on human health. There are known, effective responses for many of these impacts, but the scope, timeline and complexity of climate change is unprecedented.
Join us for a discussion about the health impacts of climate change, as well as their potential solutions, with George Luber, associate director for climate change at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
