Professor Ian Roberts, Director, Clinical Trials Unit, UCL London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
Mitigating climate change presents unrivalled opportunities for improving public health. The policies that need to be implemented to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will also bring about substantial reductions in heart disease, cancer, fatness, diabetes, road deaths and injuries, and air pollution. The health benefits arise because climate change policies impact on two of the most important determinants of health: human nutrition and human movement. Although the health co-benefits of climate change policies are increasingly recognised by health professionals they are not widely appreciated by those responsible for climate change policy.
