Medact, The Climate and Health Council, Healthy Planet UK, et al. February 2015
This report makes a powerful case for action. It reminds us how climate change and the air pollution associated with fossil fuel combustion pose substantial hazards to health. Taken together, this may be even greater than those posed by tobacco. Health professionals have understood the urgency of the health threat posed by man-made climate change for years, and the evidence has only become stronger with time. We now need to act on this knowledge, personally and as members of our representative bodies, and to demand that our political representatives do likewise.
