The Health Emergency of our Changing Climate

published 3 months ago by UCTV

Human health is affected by environmental change. Those impacts are distributed unequally within and between populations and the disparity between those most responsible and those most affected by change. Dr. Thomas Newman describes how you can reduce your own environmental footprint by conserving energy, reducing travel, eating less meat, and offsetting carbon. But individual change alone will not be enough as greater change is necessary. Newman is Professor Emeritus of Epidemiology & Biostatistics and Pediatrics at UCSF and the Chair of San Francisco Bay Area Physicians for Social Responsibility Environmental Health Committee.
