NEW REPORT – The Health Promise of Climate Solutions
CONSORTIUM RELEASES REPORT ON THE HEALTH PROMISE OF CLIMATE SOLUTIONS
The Medical Society Consortium on Climate & Health has released a new report targeted to health professionals: “The Health Promise of Climate Solutions.” The report outlines five climate solutions that research shows will deliver immediate, often localized, health and equity benefits. Our focus is on the solutions that proactively advance both health and health equity, recognizing that some of us face greater health risks than others.
The Medical Promise report makes the case that tackling climate change, quickly and ambitiously, presents us with a tremendous opportunity not only to protect our long-term health, but to improve our health now. Whether we are talking about adapting to the climate change that is already happening, or mitigating climate change by reducing heat-trapping pollution, climate action is not just about a future we need to create. It’s about a future we want to create.
