Kim Brown from the Real News Network, in Baltimore, interviewed Gary Cohen (HCWH’s President and Founder) to discuss the role the healthcare sector can play, in not only mitigating the health impacts from climate change, but also helping communities to adapt to a warmer world.
“At a broad level, the kind of changes that we’re seeing, as a result of climate change, will have profound negative impacts on everybody on the planet. We’ve never really faced, as a global civilization, this level of public health threat. The Lancet, commissioned in the UK, which is a very prominent health journal, has called climate change the greatest public health threat of the 21st century,” says Cohen.
