Despite the enormous gains in reducing child mortality resulting from the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, in some ways children's future wellbeing has never been under greater threat. Climate and environmental change, primarily driven by poor air quality, represents a major threat to child health and wellbeing, through both direct and indirect effects. Climate change has multiple environmental consequences impacting negatively on child health and wellbeing, including increases in…

Ethical considerations regarding the effects of climate change and planetary health on children
Child health‐care professionals need to advocate for policies to address climate change that consider the complex health, planetary and ethical considerations necessary to solve the most significant risk to children's health today.


Implications of Climate Change for Children in Developing Countries
Summary: Climate change may be particularly dangerous for children in developing countries. Even today, many developing countries experience a disproportionate share of extreme weather, and they are

Respiratory effects of air pollution on children
A greater understanding of the adverse health consequences of exposure to air pollution in early life is required to encourage policy makers to reduce such exposures and improve human health.
Chronic effects of air pollution on respiratory health in Southern California children: findings from the Southern California Children's Health Study.
To further ameliorate adverse health effects attributable to air pollution, many more toxic pollutants may require regulation and control of motor vehicle emissions and other combustion sources may need to be strengthened.

Impacts of 21st century climate change on global air pollution-related premature mortality
Climate change modulates surface concentrations of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and ozone (O3), indirectly affecting premature mortality attributed to air pollution. We estimate the change in

The geographic distribution and economic value of climate change-related ozone health impacts in the United States in 2030
In this United States-focused analysis we use outputs from two general circulation models (GCMs) driven by different greenhouse gas forcing scenarios as inputs to regional climate and chemical
Climate Change and Respiratory Infections.
Climate change may alter the incidence and severity of respiratory infections by affecting vectors and host immune responses, and changes in temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, and air pollution influence viral activity and transmission.
