Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Lancet, 2009 Comparison of deaths related to issues related to climate change around the world Climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century. THEN VS. NOW Burning of Fossil Fuels Water-Borne Diseases & Bacteria Climate Change and Your Health Health Implications Anthropogenic Causes Urbanization Deforestation Future Solutions Less available forest leads to a decrease in carbon dioxide draw down. It increases the spread of certain diseases while destroying plants and animals that may hold the key to treating illnesses that plague millions of people. Climate change could undercut urbanization by exacerbating resource scarcity and putting vulnerable communities at riskfrom sea level rise and more frequent and intense storms. This action is the largest known contribution to climate change. Burning releases carbon dioxide gas to the atmosphere, which has occurred since the era of Industrialization. Concentrations of Gases in Our Air Respiratory & Heart Disease Vectors & Diseases By: Matthew Muratore Melissa Govindaraju Angelica Martinez Air Pollution contributes to and is made worse by climate change. It causes 1 in 8 deaths annually. Diseases like diarrhea and cholera are projected to increase significantlydue to more flooding and more droughts across the world. Climate change shifts habitats in a way that brings wildlife, livestock and humans into contact with pathogens that they would normally be exposed to. Food Availability Fish stocks, shellfish and coral are all highly vulnerable to the combined effects of climate change and ocean acidification. Biochar This is a name for charcoal when it is used for particular purposes especially as a soil amendment. Like most charcoal, biochar is created by pyrolysis. Biochar is under investigation as an approach to carbon sequestration to decrease carbon dioxide emissions. Mechanical Trees Ocean Fertilization This is the intentional introduction of iron to the ocean to stimulate a This is intended to enhance biological productivity, which can benefit the marine food chain and is under investigation in hopes of increasing carbon dioxide removal from the atmosphere. phytoplankton bloom. This is a notable example of atmospheric scrubbing. Climate researcher Lackner imagines artificial trees around theworld could remove ambient CO2. Artificial tree technology can suck up to 1,000 times more CO2 from the air than real trees.
