Many public health impacts have been predicted for climate change, but there has been relatively little exploration of ways to minimize the risks and develop long-term adaptation strategies, according to a recent article published in Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP).
A new overview outlines the critical elements needed to address one such impact: heat-related illnesses and deaths, which are expected to increase with more frequent and more intense heat waves. Read the full story on how to adapt to anticipated weather extremes on the EHP website.
