Climate Change and Global Health: a new conceptual framework

Butler, Colin

Description

Climate change’s burden of disease seems orders of magnitude too low to justify claims that it is this century’s greatest threat to health. However, such claims can be more easily understood by considering how climate change acts as a risk multiplier, compounding pre-existing socially and politically-mediated drivers of adverse health consequences including conflict.
