Climate Change and Health – DISCUSSION
October 30, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has issued a new report on the impacts of global warming. This report, Global Warming of 1.5oC, contains dire predictions of drought, disease, famine and death resulting from greenhouse gas emissions. Is this really how a changing climate will affect us? Will it increase or lessen disease? Our food supply? Weather events like floods or droughts? On October 30, 2018, the CO2 Coalition will present a panel discussion of our latest White Paper, Climate Change and Health. This study, by Australian physician D. Weston Allen, examines past, present and possible future impacts of climate change on a range of human health areas from nutrition to social and mental health, with insights into energy supplies and sufficiency. The panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer period.
Author: D. Weston Allen, MD, obtained a medical degree at the University of Queensland and his FRACGP and Graduate Diploma in Physical Medicine at Sydney University. He pioneered preventive and predictive medicine, transdermal nicotine for smokers and novel blood spatter studies.
Panelist: Patrick Michaels, PhD is the director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute. He is a past president of the American Association of State Climatologists and was program chair for the Committee on Applied Climatology of the American Meteorological Society.
Panelist: James Steele is Emeritus Director of San Francisco State University’s Sierra Nevada Field Campus and the author of Landscapes and Cycles: An Environmentalist’s Journey to Climate Skepticism.
