Are you ready for the new normal on planet Earth?
Dr. Paul R. Epstein, associate director of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School, recently published an article in The Atlantic on “Health and Climate Change: 7 Ways You Are Being Harmed.”
Here’s the list of enviro-health effects:
2-Asthma and Allergies
3-Spread of Infectious Diseases
4-Pests and Diseases Affecting Forests, Crops, Marine Life
5-Winter Weather Anomalies
When you read the article, what’s striking is that climate change is not just a health issue, it also has a clear impact on our economies. To say that we can’t afford to take measures that slow climate change down is not only shortsighted, it’s potentially fatal for the FINANCIAL health of the world as we know it.
