Podcast: The Health Hazards of One Degree

The reframing of cigarette smoke as a public health issue was a turning point in the tobacco wars. Can the same happen with climate change? Panel discussion featuring PSR's Dr. Bob Gould.

Global warming is hitting closer to home than we think, from a neighborhood child gasping with asthma to a parent collapsing from heatstroke. These realities led U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy to assert in April that climate change presents the most complex threat to public health in U.S. history.
