Considering the many pathways through which climate change can adversely affect our health, global climate disruption poses enormous risks to human and societal health. At the same time, interventions to combat climate change by choosing more sustainable energy sources can offer potentially large health dividends and lives saved. These opportunities, along with climate change health risks, will be discussed in this presentation.
