Natural calamities are commonplace in many too many countries and It is no secret that climate change is warming the air, raising sea levels and causing more severe storms and wildfires. Air pollution is the world’s single largest environmental health risk with around 7 million people dying every year from exposure to polluted air. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates that global warming will continue to climb unless we dramatically step up action.

Did you know it’s also affecting human health by increasing disease, causing food insecurity and disrupting medical care?

  1. Jeslin Varghese

    I watched Dr. Schiller speak on this topic earlier this month with Citizen’s Climate Lobby. I was impressed by the depth of her knowledge on the subject and her passion about the impact of climate change on health. This is a much needed conversation among building professionals too and I am so excited to have her speak at GBRI’s FREE webinar series. Looking forward to moderate the session Joan and her son Craig Schiller whom many of us are familiar who has hosted courses on Green Schools and Net Zero with GBRI.
