Climate Change is Affecting Our Health. Is There a Cure? | Jonathan Patz | TEDxOshkosh

Hotter days and nights, and changing rainfall patterns reduce water supply quantity and quality, and diminish food security. Find out more. Water is life, and climate change is threatening this. Climate change, together with other natural and human-made health stressors, influences human health and disease in numerous ways.

Some existing health threats will intensify and new health threats will emerge. Not everyone is equally at risk. Important considerations include age, economic resources, and location. In the U.S., public health can be affected by disruptions of. Climate change can affect health in many ways.

Heat-related illnesses and deaths will increase as the earth warms up. Hurricanes, cyclones, floods, and wildfires are expected to increase, causing injury and death. “Climate change, and the air pollution from fossil fuels that are driving it, threatens the child’s health starting in the mother’s womb and only accumulates from there,” she said. Climate change is insidious. It is an important contributor to devastating hurricanes, extreme heat, desertification, drenching rainstorms, and other life-threatening environmental changes.

Climate change is a significant threat to the health of the American people. The impacts of human-induced climate change are increasing nationwide. Rising greenhouse gas concentrations result in increases in temperature, changes in precipitation, increases in the frequency and intensity of some extreme weather events, and rising sea levels.

Climate change is a public-health issue. It has been linked to chronic conditions, such as kidney disease, depression and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and can shove the body’s response to. As climate change worsens, dangerous weather events are becoming more frequent or severe in the United States and around the globe.

WWF is challenging cities to transition toward 100 percent renewable energy and address local climate threats by implementing practical measures that improve air quality, protect water supplies and reduce urban flooding. The effects of global warming on human health are already apparent and growing worse, according to Ripple and Dr. Eric Cioe Pena, director of global health at Northwell Health in New Hyde Par.

Climate change will increase the number of bad air days across much of the United States. a This puts millions of Americans at risk for irritated eyes, noses, and lungs, but it’s particularly.

Climate change–related temperature fluctuations can also affect foodand waterborne infectious diseases5 such as gastritis, which can be fatal in children (EPA, 2018), particularly those who already have other compromising vulnerabilities and/ or illnesses.

These negative climate changes in turn can lead to health-related conditions such as respiratory illnesses (e.g., asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), heat stroke, and heat-related morbidity.

Framing climate change in terms of public health stresses climate change’s potential to increase the incidence of infectious diseases, asthma, allergies, heat stroke, and other salient health problems, especially among the most vulnerable populations: the elderly and children.

Climate change poses five specific risks for human development from increased oceanic temperatures leading to more weather-related disasters, reduced agricultural productivity, increased water insecurity, reduced ecosystems and biodiversity, and increased adverse human health consequences (UNDP 2007).

Other health risks related to climate change include increased injuries, fatalities, and mental health stressors from weather-related disasters, heat-related illness and death, and even civil strife if degradation of the environment destabilizes cultures or economies (World Health Organization, 2014a).

  • So eye-opening and inspiring! So happy that a Wisconsin native can preach these issues on such a prominent stage. I hope this is only another stepping stone to bigger things for Pr. Patz and the earth!

  • Anything beyond surfeit can be a pollutant…. we’re looking at a question of balance…. excess CO2 is not taken up by plants that are not allowed to exist…. and our current Agricultural and Industrial Methods are disruptive in the extreme for plant growth….. around the World. At the Same time we started hyper-injecting fossilized carbon into our atmosphere…. we began proliferating Iron Plow Tillage…. agriculturally disrupting photo-synthetic carbon sequestration…. effectively Doubling the Damage….at LEAST. We MIGHT be able to turn THAT around faster than anything else we CAN do…. EXPONENTIALLY increasing Soil Carbon Retention by adopting all-around no-till organic agricultural methods…. MANY beneficial Societal effects here… MO’ Bettah Food&Health/Mo’ Bettah Money (at the GROUND-level…. where LongGREENMoney makes Mo’ Bettah Benefits in a trickle-UP irrigation model) & LESS/LESS money for the Manufacturers of Agri-Toxins…. where Mo’ Money makes Mo’ Profit$forPoi$on and little el$e be$ide$ Profit$ for Political Power in Proliferation of Pain…. and THERE’$ your trouble…. NOW we know why it’s so hard to even TALK about making beneficial changes much less understand root Need for So doing AND….Root Cau$e for NOT. Go ahead…. Wave your magic Wand…. even WITHOUT climate crisis…. these agri-poison$ cause Air/Water/Food AND Health Pollution…. so IF you should find yourselves mentally incapable of grasping a Wider Scope for this Impending Horror… understand clearly NOW…. that carcinogenic and other-wise Toxic agri-chemical residues are CURRENTLY doing to your body&being what the manufacturers of those chemicals are doing to all Life IN and ON Earth. It is Time to Change…. not just how we generate and use our energy (Roof-topSolarW/BatteryBack-upNOnukes) but how we grow the very food we eat….and in So doing we can…. in all likelihood…. RESOLVE our Climate AND Pollution PROBLEMS…. in REAL Time.

  • Soooo.. meat production has 75% ressources waste.. maybe having 400% more food would be a good idea.
    How about you guys stop wasting everyone’s ressources and eat something else.

  • The only way to save our soil is with regenerative agriculture and that requires free-range animal farming. You can support it by eating more grass-finished meat, grass-fed dairy, free range eggs. Eating vegetables/fruits/factory farmed animals and animal products is depleting the soil of its nutrients.
