NEHA's President's Column: The Impacts of Climate Change Are at Our Doorstep!
Please see NEHA's President's column in its November 2018 Journal of Environmental Health, The Impacts of Climate Change Are at Our Doorstop. The column stresses the need for the environmental health profession to address the impacts of climate change on our work in areas such as air, water, vector control, food, safety, and the built environment.
4th National Climate Assessment
The National Climate Assessment is a congressional-mandated report released about every four years on what climate change means for the U.S. The report is produced by federal agencies comprising the U.S. Global Change Research Program, a presidential initiative started by President Ronald Reagan and mandated by Congress in the Global Change Research Act of 1990. The findings consolidate key messages and supporting evidence from 16 national-level topic chapters, ten regional chapters, and two chapters that focus on mitigation and adaptation response strategies.
