Climate Change Bad For Health, Says AMA

Say, I wonder how?

If physicians want evidence of climate change, they may well find it in their own offices. Patients are presenting with illnesses that once happened only in warmer areas. Chronic conditions are becoming aggravated by more frequent and extended heat waves. Allergy and asthma seasons are getting longer. Spates of injuries are resulting from more intense ice storms and snowstorms.

Hot, cold, wet, dry, all apparently caused by mankinds release of a trace greenhouse gas necessary for most life on Earth.

Climate change is hardly a physician-only concern. However, doctors may find themselves on the front lines in dealing with its serious and immediate problems. Patients are sicker or developing new conditions as a result of changes in the weather. Greater awareness and understanding of the situation, from a medical perspective, is a proper priority.

Huh. I guess the weather never changed before 1980. That cold climate at the beginning of the Little Ice Age must have been wonderful, what with all the bubonic plague and stuff.
