Climate Change and Your Health: Fact, Fiction or Fever?

Smoke stack polluting the air

Think of climate change like our planet catching the flu. Just like when we’re sick, the planet’s temperature rises, but in this case, instead of coughing and sneezing, sea levels increase, weather patterns shift, and living organisms fight to survive as their way of life is disrupted.

Climate change has the potential to impact our food and water supply, where and how we are able to live, the severity and frequency of natural disasters, the types of diseases we encounter, and more. As a result, we are likely to face a variety of new health risks.

Since we can’t just quarantine Earth, join us to learn more about climate change and how to keep yourself healthy now and in the future.
