What has climate change got to do with health?

I recently wrote a blog for Cambridge Carbon Footprint, a local charity here in the UK, on the links between health and climate.

It is an introduction for a non specialist audience on the health impacts of climate change, the benefits of climate action and the role of the health system can have. I conclude that understanding climate change as a health issue helps us to:

‘see climate action as an opportunity for creating better lives for ourselves and our children. Seen in this light the future low carbon world becomes something, not to agonise over, but to rush towards optimistic in the opportunities it holds.’
