From the November 2009 issue of The Lancet
Climate change already affects human health, and, if no action is taken, problems such as malnutrition, deaths and injury due to extreme weather conditions, and change in geographical distribution of disease vectors will worsen. This Series is the result of an international collaboration of scientists supported by a consortium of funding bodies coordinated by the Wellcome Trust, UK. The Comments and Articles make a strong case for linking climate and health goals, and provide a quantitative underpinning for this important health message.
The Ecology Class at FHS will be discussing climate change and public health. If the Ecology class at the main campus (BIOL 207) is also interested in spending more time discussing climate change and public health, the syllabus can be accommodated accordingly. You tell me.
