climate change impacts on the health of Canadians /
"There is considerable science-based evidence that the global climate is changing, with increasing overall temperatures, increasing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, and altered patterns of precipitation. The Lancet Commission (2015) speaks to the many and serious impacts of climate change on health, and how addressing these could be “the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century”. Extreme weather events and increased climate variability associated with climate change exacerbate current public health challenges globally, and present new risks to populations. For Canada, various effects of climate change play a significant compounding factor that negatively affects the health and resilience of vulnerable communities."--Executive Summary, p. 1.
