Fossil Fuel Pollution and Climate Change
From the New England Journal of Medicine
As the burning of fossil fuels continues to cause health hazards like air pollution, it is also the primary driver of the climate crisis. The healthcare sector has a responsibility to urgently respond to the accelerating impacts of record temperatures, extreme weather events, and rising sea levels that are contributing to a full-fledged public health crisis across the globe. This new reality prompts crucial questions for clinicians and healthcare leaders on collectively moving forward to prevent and mitigate current and future health and healthcare system impacts.
Join editors from the New England Journal of Medicine as they bring attention to the broad range of health impacts of climate change and how physicians and healthcare leaders can help safeguard their patients’ health.
