PHI's Linda Rudolph on "Climate One: Health Hazards of One Degree"
2016 | Listen to the recording.
Global warming is hitting closer to home than we think, from a neighborhood child gasping with asthma to a parent collapsing from heatstroke. These realities led U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy to assert in April that climate change presents the most complex threat to public health in U.S. history.
This Climate One program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California on April 5, 2016, and features:
- Rachel Morello-Frosch, Professor, University of California, Berkeley
- Linda Rudolph, Director, Center for Climate Change and Health, Public Health Institute
- Robert Gould, Director of Health Professional Outreach and Education, Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment, UCSF
- Katrina Peters, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCSF
September 2016 update: C1 Revue — Human Health and Social Equity in a Hot World
Parts of this forum with PHI's Linda Rudolph were included in Climate One's C1 Revue podcast, which combines together several Climate One programs with a uniting theme.
"Fossil fuels have lifted nations into the modern era, bringing wealth and well being to many. But as we turn away from these carbon intensive energy sources, will the promise of jobs and prosperity from a clean energy society, be fulfilled? Or will the gulf between the haves and have-nots simply widen? And how will we protect everyone from the health impacts of a hot world?"
Climate One at The Commonwealth Club offers a forum for candid discussion among climate scientists, policymakers, activists, and concerned citizens. By gathering inspiring, credible, and compelling information, we provide an essential resource to change-makers looking to make a difference.
