Climate change and human health: present and future risks
The epidemiological evidence of how climate variations and trends affect various health outcomes is summarised and evidence and anticipation of adverse health effects will strengthen the case for pre-emptive policies, and guide priorities for planned adaptive strategies. Expand
Biological invasions: recommendations for U.S. policy and management.
The Ecological Society of America recommends that the federal government take the following six actions: use new information and practices to better manage commercial and other pathways to reduce the transport and release of potentially harmful species, and establish a National Center for Invasive Species Management. Expand
Food, livestock production, energy, climate change, and health
To prevent increased greenhouse-gas emissions from this production sector, both the average worldwide consumption level of animal products and the intensity of emissions from livestock production must be reduced, and an international contraction and convergence strategy offers a feasible route to such a goal. Expand
Potential impact of global climate change on malaria risk.
Assessment of the potential impact of global climate change on the incidence of malaria suggests a widespread increase of risk due to expansion of the areas suitable for malaria transmission, most pronounced at the borders of endemic malaria areas and at higher altitudes within malarial areas. Expand
International study of temperature, heat and urban mortality: the 'ISOTHURM' project.
Most cities showed a U-shaped temperature-mortality relationship, with clear evidence of increasing death rates at colder temperatures in all cities except Ljubljana, Salvador and Delhi and with increasing heat in all city except Chiang Mai and Cape Town. Expand
Climate change and future populations at risk of malaria
Global estimates of the potential impact of climate change on malaria transmission were calculated based on future climate scenarios produced by the HadCM2 and the more recent HadCM3 global climateExpand

  • 29 July 2004
The contemporary spread and increased lability of various infectious diseases, new and old, reflect the combined and increasingly widespread impacts of demographic, environmental, behavioural, technological and other rapid changes in human ecology. Expand
The health impacts of cold homes and fuel poverty
Three reasons to act: the health burden, inequity, and mitigation
Nonstationary Influence of El Niño on the Synchronous Dengue Epidemics in Thailand
The underlying mechanism for the synchronisation of dengue epidemics may resemble that of a pacemaker, in which intrinsic disease dynamics interact with climate variations driven by El Niño to propagate travelling waves of infection. Expand
