Book Reading: Climate Change, Social Inequity and the People's Health
Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, 9 Bow St.
Tue., Feb. 12, 2019, 4 – 6 p.m.
Climate change threatens humanity and the planet on which we live. Social inequities, including startling variance in the health outcomes that different population groups enjoy, also pose a threat to humanity, although less directly. Together, the scale of devastation these threats pose is unprecedented…but wholesale destruction is not inevitable. Humanity can and must act to prevent catastrophic climate change and redress egregious global health inequities. It must act now.
