Town Square: Health Benefits of Climate Change Policies
Town Square: Health Benefits of Climate Change Policies

Policies that need to be implemented to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will also bring about substantial reductions in air pollution and cardiovascular disease. These policies will also change urban mobility and our built environment. Including health benefits in the discussion creates a different paradigm-one that represents a win-win for most people, and for the planet. A panel of environmental health experts discusses the health co-benefits of climate change policies.
