Climate and Health Research Seminar - Shared screen with speaker view
Ronda Seifert
My biggest concern is that our global emissions are not just staying stable, but actually increasing (and there are tipping points on the horizon). I appreciate that we will work on carbon emission reductions in the healthcare sector, but the most critical piece in terms of our future, our children’s future, the future of vulnerable populations, is rapidly reducing global emissions. How will we make a meaningful difference when our emissions are increasing and the US still does not have an overall plan in place for rapidly reducing emissions?

Great presentation....it would be really great if the methods of vulnerability assessment are internationally harmonized

Dr. Balbus, I didn't see or hear you identify as part of vulnerable communities. Top down approach is what leads people to think that COVID-19 exposed health inequities but oppressed communities have always been aware of this, including climate and health scholars from vulnerable communities. How are communities leading these initiatives you described and how does your positionality inform their engagement?
