The impacts of climate change are now and will certainly in the future make many of us sick. As worldwide temperature, precipitation, and weather patterns change we are seeing lethal heat waves, worsening air quality, dangerous storms, and the spread of insect-borne diseases to previously unaffected regions. How will we protect human health and life in a world disrupted by climate change?
We invite you to our next Catholic Climate Covenant webinar focusing on the impacts of climate change on human health. Join us to learn how you can be part of the solution.
