Climate Change poses an existential crisis for our planet. It presents a series of global health threats above and beyond the risks of ever greater storms, wildfires, droughts and sea-level rise. This presentation will address the reality of the science of climate change and discuss the mental and physical health implications we face. It will also address the many solutions that are already at hand—political, personal and professional—to combat the crisis.
