Tackling climate change will reap benefits for human health

Recommended Posts

Curbing climate change could be the biggest global health opportunity of the 21st century. But if we choose not to act, we could reverse all the progress made by economic development in the last 50 years towards improving global public health.

 

These are the conclusions of a new report by the Lancet Commission out today.

 

Curbing air pollution, phasing out coal, access to clean energy worldwide and promoting healthier lifestyles would have "immediate gains" for human health, says the report. 

 

The authors also call for a global price on carbon and a scaling-up of adaptation financing.

 

The Lancet Commission is a body set up to map out the impacts of climate change on health, and make recommendations to improve health standards worldwide.

 

Today's report is a collaboration between European and Chinese academics across the physical, health, political and social sciences, economics, energy policy and engineering.

Well they would say that wouldn't they.

How do that then, without putting up prices so much that a large % of people have to choose between eating and keeping warm, ....ermm...

We'll also need to cover virtually evey possible area with windmills and solar panels which is presumably what they are really flogging.

Or wanting to keep tax breaks for.
