The 2014 WHO conference on #health and #climate.

Air pollution is estimated to cause one in every eight deaths,5 so reduction of emissions of black carbon and other short-lived pollutants may not only slow warming but also avert almost 2.5 million deaths annually. It concluded that climate change acts mainly by exacerbating existing health problems but also affects water, food and nutrition security, and that the most vulnerable populations are those that are already most affected by climate-related diseases. It highlighted the possibility of high-end climate scenarios – including warming by 4–7 °C over much of the globe by 2100 – that would lead to some critical thresholds being crossed. Such warming might make outdoor physical activity in the hottest parts of the year dangerous in many locations. Some human habitats may be lost altogether as low-lying countries are submerged by rising seas. Climate change is a threat to a bottom line of sustainable development – human health.
