Population Health Risks of a Changing Climate

11



Climate change affects the health of all Americans. The adverse health consequences are projected to worsen with additional climate change. Kristie Ebi, University of Washington, explains that proactive adaptation policies and programs reduce the risks and impacts from climate-sensitive health outcomes and from disruptions in healthcare services. Additional benefits to health arise from explicitly accounting for climate change risks in infrastructure planning and urban design. Recorded on 11/10/2020. [1/2021] [Show ID: 36491]

    700 died from festival in Chicago? Easy, just don't go to outdoor festivals during heatwave. The European heatwaves which caused tens of thousands of deaths, I recall, it was because European homes don't have air conditioning, when you stay home you over-heat, but you cannot go outside because it is even hotter. European homes have to have air conditioning.
