Climate change and human health

Howard Frumkin of the University of Washington offered this talk in November 2013 looking at the intersection of climate change and human health. He explores the potential effects of climate change through a number of facets including heat, severe weather, climate-related disease, pollution, poverty, water supply, crops and agriculture, allergies, hunger, mental health, and civil conflict. He also looks at some public health actions, strategies, and innovations to help mitigate these potential issues.
