Texas Fish and Game in a Changing Climate

Texas sportsmen and women know that the species they prize are highly attuned to climate. Climate change is already resulting in many changes that are being observed across land and water habitats, including changes in the types of fish, wildlife and plants, their population size, and shifts in where and when species are found. This publication describes some of the effects that have already been seen in Texas and what may be in store for the state's fish and game in the future.

Just offshore of Northern California lies an underwater national park called the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is cared for and protected by NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Greater Farallones Association supports the efforts of NOAA and the Sanctuary with citizen science programs, restoring critical habitat, addressing climate change, education for kids, and funding for noted researchers.

 

ANHE Climate and Health Toolkit

Tool Overview: 

Nurses are crucial to fighting climate change and protecting the health of patients, communities, and future generations. There are several simple (but meaningful) actions that nurses can take to support climate-friendly environments at work, in communities, and in daily life. And, as you expand your range of actions, there are many other ways you can move your leadership forward for larger impact.

Nurses can move forward in addressing climate change by:

The California Heat Assessment Tool

Tool Overview: 

California’s climate is warming and residents increasingly endure extreme heat events that adversely impact public health. This exacerbates existing risks and will bring new challenges for different regions in the state, threatening the efficacy of traditional intervention strategies. Current thresholds for heat alerts are based on temperatures that exceed historical statistical thresholds, rather than temperatures that cause public health impacts. These ‘health-neutral’ thresholds may underestimate the health risks for the most sensitive populations.

Adapting to the Changing Climate: An Assessment of Local Health Department Preparations for Climate Change-Related Health Threats, 2008-2012

Background

Climate change poses a major public health threat. A survey of U.S. local health department directors in 2008 found widespread recognition of the threat, but limited adaptive capacity, due to perceived lack of expertise and other resources.

Conveying the Human Implications of Climate Change: A Climate Change Communication Primer for Public Health Professionals

There is now widespread agreement among climate scientists that the earth is warming as a result of human activity, primarily due to rising levels of carbon dioxide and other heat trapping atmospheric gases created by burning fossil fuels. It is also clear that current trends in energy use, development, and population growth will lead to continuing — and more severe — climate change over the course of this century and beyond. Climate change is expected to adversely affect the health of all Americans as well.
