Global climate change represents one of the most important public health challenges facing the world today. Climate change causes a wide range of adverse health effects including heat-related disorders, infectious diseases, respiratory and allergic disorders, and malnutrition. Further mitigation and adaptation efforts are necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve both human and planetary health alike.

Climate Change and Public Health offers a clear guide to the health consequences of climate change and the available preventative measures. Written by leading scholars and practitioners in the fields of climate science and medicine, this comprehensive volume introduces the health impacts of climate change with chapters covering topics such as heat-related disorders, food insecurity, mental health impacts, and climate-related violence. It describes the relevant policymaking processes and features policies intended to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions across sectors including energy and transportation. Further chapters highlight modern adaptation measures for the consequences of climate change and offer evolving methods for adaptation and mitigation new to this second edition. Most importantly, Climate Change and Public Health promotes a climate justice framework with crucial insights for strengthening the public and political will to address climate change.

Now updated with key developments in mitigation and adaptation from the last decade, this second edition of Climate Change and Public Health offers an engaging overview of climate change and its health consequences alongside evolving methods for climate resilience.
