Physicians and other health practitioners have long acknowledged that climate and environmental conditions affect human health. They have raised concerns about the many aspects of climate change that are likely to affect our health and quality of life.
Climate change-related health threats impact every aspect of our lives. Other than increasing temperatures, climate change increases the risks of emerging diseases, as well as challenges to our mental, emotional, and community health.
In the twenty-first century, promoting sustainable societies and individual well-being necessitates acknowledging climate change’s health effects.
Here are a few examples of how combating climate change will improve our health:
- Encouraging efficient and inclusive mobility improves people’s health and safety. It also decreases reliance on fossil-fuel-powered transportation, such as automobiles.
- We will respond to climate change by investing in climatic conditions, health science, and more vital medical institutions. It ensures that health care providers and their families have the tools they need to solve current and potential challenges.
- Alternative sources, such as solar panels and wind turbines, are environmentally friendly to power our neighborhoods.
- Implementing green solutions for our cities through the innovative landscape and city design will help us mitigate the effects of extreme heat, minimize damage from extreme events such as floods, and more.
- Scaling up sustainability means reduced aquifer depletion and greenhouse gases that harm us, not to include less dependence on fossil fuels that damage the environment in the first place.
