Jessica Beagley, Climate Change: the greatest threat to health this century?

The recent talk given by Jessica Beagley on the medical impacts of climate change was particularly interesting because she used various methods such as- statistics, illustrative diagrams and explanation of different tipping points such as the melting of Arctic Permafrost and the spread of Malaria throughout Europe- to convey how urgent the climate crisis that we are facing is.  She proposed some methods of actions that we might consider taking. This can be done by starting to reduce our own Carbon footprint, think how to put a pressure on politicians and large organisations to reduce our overall effect on the environment. It is easy to realise that there are the many methods we could use, as well as innovations in technology such as sustainable electricity that would aid us in the fight against climate crisis.
