Bummer: Very Few Medical Schools Teach ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

Most likely because medical schools deal with actual science, not cultish beliefs

Despite Climate Change Health Threats, Few Medical Schools Teach It
Heat, mosquito-borne diseases and air pollution are medical issues that should be viewed through a climate lens, advocates say

Despite the threat climate change poses to human health, very few medical schools have made it a part of their coursework.

The International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations recently conducted a survey of medical schools in 118 countries. Of the medical schools reviewed, the IFMSA found 15.9% have made climate change a part of their curricula.

Dr. Renee Salas, an emergency room doctor and climate change researcher at the Harvard Global Health Institute, said she was not surprised by the results. Through her work at Harvard, she has tried to incorporate climate change into the teachings of U.S. medical schools.

Salas said the survey shows there is an opportunity to train the next generation of physicians so they have the skills necessary to practice in a future where global warming affects every aspect of their jobs.

“Climate change is truly that threat multiplier,” she said. “It impacts, in my opinion, every facet of how we practice medicine.”

Even if the Modern Warm Period was mostly/solely caused by the actions of Mankind (it’s not), doctors already learn about things like heat stroke and diseases and such: there’s not need for them to be indoctrinated into learning about weather and cult doctrine.

Salas echoed that idea, saying that schools can add climate change to lessons of asthma and other conditions.

“My approach is all they need to do is add a climate lens to what they’re already teaching,” she said.

This solution has its own hurdle, as there are few climate experts currently in the medical field. That’s why Salas says medical schools need to focus on collaboration and developing electronic curriculum that could be used to more easily spread growing knowledge from existing experts.

Looks like the Cult of Climastrology is attempting to take over the medical field.

    Despite Bigfoot sightings, few engineering schools teach origami.

    Both are equally meaningful.

    What do you think is causing the rate of warming to be increasing ?
    Do you still believe that 1998 was the warmest year on record ? And if so does that mean tgst the Earth is cooling ?

    How certain are you that the current period of warming is not caused by humankind?

    And on what do you base your certainty?

    gitarcarver demonstrated that atmospheric greenhouse gases slow the rate at which infrared radiation (heat) leaves the Earth confirming the mechanism by which atmospheric CO2 causes warming, and atmospheric CO2 has increased over the past century or so (from 260 ppm to over 400 ppm –> and still increasing!), and the increased CO2 comes from humankind burning fossil fuels, so what more evidence do you need?

    CO2 is increasing
    The increase is from humans burning fossil fuels
    CO2 absorbs infrared (heat) radiation
    The Earth is warming

    Even global warming deniers no longer deny warming. It seems unreasonable to think that CO2 is not at least partly responsible (even gitarcarver posted articles showing that greenhouse gases slow heat loss from the Earth).

    So how certain are you that humans are not causing the warming?

    “Even global warming deniers no longer deny warming.” Wow, that must have hurt for you to admit those who you call “deniers”, aren’t.

    ” It seems unreasonable to think that CO2 is not at least partly responsible”. Why? And how do you have the audacity to use the word “unreasonable” when you deny that a fetus is a stage of human development and killing it is murder, or that it’s impossible for a male to become a female? Those things are “unreasonable”. Having doubts about the quantity of human contributions to global warming is scientific skepticism, not denial.

    “So how certain are you that humans are not causing the warming?” How? because warming existed many times before humans even existed so we cannot be “causing” warming. Now, we are most likely “contributing” to it but we certainly don’t cause it. Your problem is since you actually believe we “cause” it you also fall into the fallacy of believing we can stop or alter it.

    Warming and cooling are part of what the universe and the earth do naturally with or without the contributions of humans. Trying to fuk with that is a crime against nature and you shouldn’t fuk with mother nature. We are in a warming period but instead of thanking God for all the advantages of warmth you seem to want to use it as an excuse to eliminate progress, technology, freedom and people. We should enjoy it while we can because the ice age will come sooner or later. Only dinosaurs think the lush green warmth lasts forever and you saw what happened to the dinosaurs.

      Aren’t, any more. Remember the imaginary “great pause” dreamt up by “skeptics” such as Teach, Monckton, Tony Wuwt etc… Global warming was over they shouted. No warming for 18 years! Good times. Contradicting himself, Tony Wuwt led the charge claiming all the thermometers were placed in such a way to guarantee “warming”. Here’s Tony in May 2019 accusing climate scientists of cheating on temperature.

      https://climatechangedispatch.com/nasa-latest-data-global-warming/

      A few years ago, deniers accepted that the Earth was warming, denying that they had ever denied anything, adopting the new mantra, “Of course the Earth is warming, what we question is the cause!”

      Even today, since old habits Die Hard (a good movie!), deniers still claim the temperature data are faked.

      So if the data are faked how do deniers know that it’s warming? Is it only partly faked?

      Because conservatives have learned to live with cognitive dissonance – believing two or more contradictory ideas at once – they can pull this off. Deniers realize how unreasonable it’s become to deny warming. Now it’s, “It’s natural, not man-made!” It won’t be too long before you’ll be told to say, “Of course it’s CO2, but to do anything will destroy the economy, and it won’t work anyway!”

      Only dinosaurs think the lush green warmth lasts forever and you saw what happened to the dinosaurs.

      Dinosaurs walked, flew and swam on Earth for over 150 million years. It’s thought that a 10 km dia asteroid hit Earth (Yucatan?) at over 40,000 miles/hr kicking up some 50,000 cubic miles of dirt and dust into the atmosphere, blocking sunlight for years, killing plants, herbivorous and carnivorous dinos. It was climate change that killed them!

      http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20160415-what-really-happened-when-the-dino-killer-asteroid-struck

      We humans? We’ve been here less than a million years. Will we make it another 150 million?

      We humans have to balance the effects of global warming in the next century against the possible ice age in 50,000 years. As old men likely to be dead and forgotten within the next 20 years, we have much less at stake than do 16 year olds, although we could sympathize today with what our great-grandchildren will likely face.

          Are we currently in a period of warming?

          Can you point out the great pause on a plot of temperature vs. year?

          Thanks.

          My recollection is that at the peak of the 1998 El Nino “skeptics” started counting until they saw the next peak to exceed 1998. Is that what you remember? “Skeptics” also chose only to look at satellite data.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          But kudos for accepting the IPCC reports.

    Oh , yes – I’d DEFINITELY want my child to be operated on by a surgeon who flunked anatomy , but took honors in “Global Warming” !

    Sorry Fredo, not true but that’s what your handlers told you so no matter what I say you will stick with your fallacy. Those of us you STILL call deniers even though YOU admit right here we “accept the earth is warming” (talk about your cognitive dissonance) never claimed the earth wasn’t warming, or cooling. That was not the basis for our skepticism which you True Believers mistake for “denial”.

    Our skepticism about Man Made Climate Change, Global Warming, Global Climate Emergency, Global Cooling etc, etc is that you guys keep changing the “science” and the rules as well as the name to fit a particular narrative at any given time. Our skepticism is because your team has made hundreds of “predictions” over the years ALL (not some) of which have been grossly incorrect.

    ” Even today, since old habits Die Hard (a good movie!), deniers still claim the temperature data are faked.

    So if the data are faked how do deniers know that it’s warming? Is it only partly faked?”

    As usual you only hear what you leftist handlers want you to hear. You say “deniers” claim the data are faked, and yet it has been or do you believe all the data is 100% true? I could go back and look up all the phony data put out by you climate alarmists but I’ll leave that up to you if you are interested. The data was faked to create a phony “crisis” or “emergency” but that does not mean real scientists haven’t shown some real temperature increases (or decreases which they too have shown). Your mind is closed. You have no room for doubt. It’s a matter of religion to you that man made climate change is real, increasing, deadly and a crisis. Just as you own cognitive dissonance causes you to believe a man an become a woman you believe climate change is bad, bad, bad. But there have been warmer times and the earth flourished.

    The dinosaurs were wiped out by a single catastrophic event that destroyed their habitat. W face no such event with man made global warming. It would take a million years for cars and jets to cause a catastrophic event like that.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      As usual Dildo misses the point. It’s about humans. Our civilizations are only 10 thousand years old, with only a few centuries building massive cites on coasts, in deserts and in flood plains. It’s about us now, not before humans walked the Earth.

      So only some data are faked? How does a newborn non-denier weed out the faked from the genuine? The science does not keep changing, although more discoveries are made – that’s how science works. Regardless of Dildo’s self-deception, we are happy he now thinks the Earth is warming. What data do you find persuasive? Hadcrut? Gistemp? UAH?

      How about the regulars here? Can you all say yes or no to whether the Earth is warming now, regardless of cause?

      So Dildo feels that “no deniers” ever denied the Earth was warming… that’s a good one. Maybe Dildo can be excused since he hasn’t been commenting long here.

    “earth is warming now”. And it’s been warming since the end of the LIA. Several new papers theorizing that it could be clouds

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      One of the new papers was from 1989.

      Can you explain in simple terms the role of clouds in global warming? More clouds, fewer clouds, high vs low, warming or cooling? Thanks.

  9. Jl says:

    That’s the point-some say lack of clouds could cause warming, some don’t know. Settled science. https://twitter.com/dawntj90/status/1209219821419630597?s=21
