Fight climate change — it's good for your health
MetadataShow full item record
Governments often see climate change as too costly to address. In fact, it is too costly to ignore. That is why the World Health Organization (WHO), for example, has linked the prevention of disastrous climate change to "immediate health benefits and health cost savings" from the reduction of air pollution. The statistics are grim. Air pollution caused more than seven million premature deaths - one in eight globally - in 2012, compared to nearly six million premature deaths from tobacco.
