Climate Change Issues
Climate change has an impact on nearly every part of our lives: the food we eat, the air we breathe, the safety of our homes and businesses. Man-made emissions have led to increased global temperatures, and this warming puts our homes, health, food supply and natural environment at risk.
At the same time, human activities – the ways we produce and consume energy and food – continue to contribute to climate change. By understanding how we are causing warming, we have the opportunity to identify actions needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and slow climate change.
Technological innovation, market forces and the will for climate action are changing the ways we generate and use energy.
Medical and public health officials understand that climate change is a serious threat to human health.
