The climate coalition health report 2021: the impacts of climate change on public health

The Climate Coalition Health Report addresses the severe health issues related to climate change which are a reminder of the need to rapidly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and reach a zero carbon economy. It is only through successful global action to reduce emissions will stop climate change – and must reduce emissions as contribution. Adaptation will have a central role in reducing climate impacts and hence health effects. The co-benefits for health in tackling climate change will include cleaner air, improved wellbeing, and a reduction in the pressure being placed on the NHS. If, for example, just a quarter of the population in England cycled regularly and there was widespread use of electric bikes, all-cause mortality (total deaths from any cause) could fall by 11%.
