Climate change impacts human health directly and indirectly and no country is immune to its effects. The 2015 Lancet Commission concluded that anthropogenic climate change threatens to undermine the last 50 years of gains in public health. More hopefully, the Commission also agreed that a comprehensive response to climate change could be the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century.
On October 31, the Lancet Countdown - an international research collaboration that tracks progress on the relationships between human health and climate change - will release its first annual Countdown Report tracking climate change and health indicators across five key domains. Our panelists will discuss the implications of the report and California’s role as the U.S. leader in climate change mitigation policy.
Gina Solomon, Deputy Secretary for Science and Health, California Environmental Protection Agency; Rachel Morello-Frosch, Professor, UC Berkeley; John Balmes, Professor, UC Berkeley and UCSF; Hector De La Torre, Member, California Air Resources Board
Linda Rudolph, Director, Center for Climate Change and Health, Public Health Institute
