Health and Climate Change

Changes in the greenhouse gas concentrations and other drivers alter the global climate and bring about a lot of human health consequences. Environmental consequences of climate change, such as extreme heat waves, rising sea levels, changes in precipitation resulting in flooding and droughts, intense hurricanes, and degraded air quality, affects, directly and indirectly, the physical, social, and psychological health of humans. Climate change can be a driver of disease migration, as well as exacerbate health effects resulting from the release of toxic air pollutants in vulnerable populations such as children, the elderly, and those with asthma or cardiovascular disease.
