Climate Changes Health: Climate Justice

#ClimateChangesHealth Climate change is public health's greatest challenge. While all of us will experience the health impacts of climate change, certain groups, like children, the elderly, the underserved and minority communities, are less climate-resilient and, as a result, are more vulnerable to negative health effects of climate change. 

How can we help? By providing resources and assistance to communities that need it most. That way, we can create healthy environments across all places. Yet we can only achieve healthy environments if our efforts are supported with sound science and informed policy. Let’s work to make sure both the best science and policies that address climate injustice are in every conversation about climate change solutions.
