Call for urgent climate-health action plan – Michael West

Yes, News Corpse’s Andrew Bolt tells us the very opposite. Warming is good it doesn’t kill

Health leaders are calling for the rapid roll out of a climate-health action plan as floods and extreme heat kill Australians.

Forty health and medical organisations warn pressure on the health system from climate change is growing as additional deaths add to the strain of a global pandemic.

Nurses, midwives, psychologists, the Australian Medical Association, the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) and others on Monday issued a set of urgent recommendations.

RACP president Jacqueline Small said doctors had a unique view and considerable experience of how climate health and human health fit together, and knew their communities.

“We see the impacts of climate change all the time, on our patients, and on our staff who are at the front line dealing with crises every day,” Dr Small said.
