Excerpt
Introduction: On November 6-7,1989, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) held a conference on Global Atmospheric Change and Human Health. As a result, and in the months since this conference, many important areas of research have been identified with regard to the impacts of climatic changes on human health. To develop comprehensive research programs that address important human health issues related to global aarming, it is necessary to beginby recognizing that some of the health effects will be direct such as those due to temperature changes, and others will be indirect consequences of environmental alterations resulting in crop loss, changing disease vectors, population migration, etc. It should also be recognized that the conditions leading to global wrming have importance to human health and the environment other than through increasing concentrations of CO, in the atmosphere, rising surface temperatures, and rising sea levels.
