Scientists From Around The World Report On Health Effects From Climate Change

Climate change already damaging the health of millions

And that air pollution is also on the rise with more than 70 cities exceeding the recommended levels of pollutants.

UN Climate Change executive secretary Patricia Espinosa and The Lancet editor-in-chief Richard Horton wrote in Time Magazine that what is the most troubling is that the dangers the world is facing today is only the beginning, and progress made towards tackling the problems could be undermined by inaction.

To examine the links between climate change and public health a project was held which involved 63 researchers from two dozen institutions around the world, including climate scientists, geographers, engineers, ecologists, mathematicians, political scientists and experts who study food, energy, and transportation.

The report does note that over the past five years there has been an accelerated response to climate change.

"For example, in Syria", the study reads, "many attribute the initial and continued conflict to the rural to urban migration that resulted from a climate change-induced drought".

It may already be too late to stop warming trends that are driving the changes, the report warns.

Professor Anthony Costello, Co-Chair of The Lancet Countdown and a Director at the World Health Organization said: "Climate change is happening and it's a health issue today for millions worldwide".

The impact of air pollution in United Kingdom cities forms part of a major investigation looking at the health and social costs of climate change around the world led by a top medical journal.

Many British cities and towns also broke the WHO limits for PM10s, slightly larger sooty specks considered less of a hazard than ultra-fine particles but still harmful to health.

The report added that 802 London schools and a high proportion of the capital's hospitals and clinics were located in highly polluted areas "potentially putting some of society's most vulnerable people at risk".

"Unfortunately previous policies about encouraging diesel adoption have led to an increase in the amount of diesel related pollution", he said.

"It's a timely wake-up call for New Zealand". A rise in heat waves and weather-related disasters threatens the health of millions each year. During the same period of time 125 million vulnerable adults over the age of 65 had been exposed to heatwaves. Mosquito-borne diseases are spreading due to the stoking of heat waves.

These are the conclusions of a joint report from The Lancet Countdown, an worldwide research collaboration that provides a global overview of the relationship between public health and climate change.

Dengue fever has become almost 10 percent more prevalent around the world since 1950, due to warm conditions that allow mosquitoes to thrive for much of the year.
