A climate of suffering : the real costs of living with inaction on climate change : Mental health and community wellbeing in the wake of extreme weather /

by Climate Institute.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Climate Institute 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 27-28Summary: This report addresses a big gap in the current public debate about climate change and how we should respond to it. There has been much legitimate concern about economic consequences and the risks to property, jobs and export earnings, but there has been a failure to discuss the consequences of climate change for human wellbeing and health. This report will help us understand the 'human face' of climate change; that is, what it means for us, for our sense of security and that of our friends, our families and our neighbours. This great and complex human induced disruption to the global environment is not just 'somewhere out there'. Increasingly, climate change will weaken the environmental and social conditions that underpin our physical and psychological health.Availability: (1)
