1. As global temperatures warm, hot days are expected to become more common and severe. Heat stroke and exhaustion are some of the most directly heat-related illnesses, but heat stress can also cause or exacerbate cardiovascular and kidneyproblems. In a 2016 assessment on climate change and health, the U.S. Global Change Research Program reported that a predicted increaseof thousands to tens of thousands of premature deaths can be expected in summer months across the United States as a result of rising temperatures. Certain risk factors make people more vulnerable to the heat. Children and older adults are more at risk, as are people with some chronic medical conditions and those taking certain medications like water pills and anti-psychotic medications. The heat is also particularly hard on people who work outsideor spend most of their time outdoors. Living in urban areas can also increase one’s chances of heat exposure because of the urban heat island effect. Paved surfaces and the b...

The right seafood choices help fight climate change » Yale

5 hours ago by Yaleclimateconnections.org

1. Seafood’s carbon footprint is primarily affected by fuel consumption. Free points to the reality that a large boat traveling the high seas to catch a migratory species like tuna is going to burn a lot more fuel than a small boat traveling less distance to catch a local species. “You know, if these boats got to go further from port to catch the fish, well they’re going to burn more gas and create more emissions,” says Basil Freddura, executive chef at the Daily Catch, a Sicilian-style seafood restaurant chain. Where the seafood is processed also can increase its carbon footprint. Even if caught without much travel, shipping seafood for foreign processing and then importing it for sale can skyrocket fuel and energy consumption, leading to higher emission rates, Freddura says. The tools used to catch seafood can also have variable climate impacts. So another element in categorizing a seafood as climate friendly involves how it was caught, Parks says. For example, purse seines – large n...
