Is climate change the biggest threat of the 21st century?

The world’s climate is changing. There is scientific consensus that since 1980 global temperatures have increased by almost 1°C. Most people experience climate change through extreme weather events, new and re-emerging infectious disease, and the long term effects of sea level rise, impoverishment and armed conflict. This 30 minute film describes the range of morbidity and mortality of climate change related phenomena in six countries around the world.

The film describes the ways in which climate change will have – is already having – significant effects on human health. These effects are unequally distributed in terms of geographic location, social status, access to power or resources, and benefit from energy.
