A Warning from 220 Leading Medical Journals

Wall Street Journal: "Editors of 220 leading medical, nursing and public-health journals from around the world called for urgent action on climate change, in a joint editorial published on Sunday.

"The editorial, which appeared in journals including the New England Journal of Medicine, the British Medical Journal and The Lancet, warns that current efforts aren’t enough to address health problems resulting from rising global temperatures caused by emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

“'Health is already being harmed by global temperature increases and the destruction of the natural world,' the journals’ editors say in the editorial. If unchecked, they say, rising temperatures 'risk catastrophic harm to health that will be impossible to reverse.'”
