Climate change, as an environmental hazard operating at the global scale, poses a unique and “involuntary exposure” to many societies, and therefore represents possibly the largest health inequity of our time. According to statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO), regions or populations already experiencing the most increase in diseases(More)
The UC Berkeley Time-Activity Monitoring System (UCB-TAMS) was developed to measure time-activity in exposure studies. The system consists of small, light, inexpensive battery-operated 40-kHz ultrasound transmitters (tags) worn by participants and an ultrasound receiver (locator) attached to a datalogger fixed in an indoor location. Presence or absence of(More)
We propose a transparent climate debt index incorporating both methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. We develop national historic emissions databases for both greenhouse gases to 2005, justifying 1950 as the starting point for global perspectives. We include CO2 emissions from fossil sources [CO2(f)], as well as, in a separate analysis, land use(More)
We develop (pp. E2865–E2874) a transparent climate debt index, termed international natural debt, which combines historical emissions of CO2 from fossil sources and land use/forestry as well as CH4. It covers 205 countries and is a function of emissions, lifetimes, and radiative forcings. This index can be used to assess the implications of choosing between(More)
Plasmid DNA encoding herpes simplex virus type-1 glycoprotein D (gD-1) was complexed with asialoorosomucoid conjugated to poly-L-lysine. Following its intravenous injection into BALB/c mice, this complex was targeted to the liver. Liver cells expressing gD-1 were detected immunohistochemically through day 6 post-immunization, while gD-1 DNA was detectable(More)
