Description

Over the last 50 years, human activities have released sufficient quantities of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to affect the global climate.

The atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide has increased by more than 30% since pre-industrial times, trapping more heat in the lower atmosphere.

The resulting changes in the global climate bring a range of risks to health, from deaths in extreme temperatures to changing patterns of infectious diseases.
