World ill-prepared to stop climate crisis reversing progress on health, The climate crisis threatens to roll back decades of progress towards better health and governments are ill-prepared to stop it, the World Meteorological Organization has said. Three-quarters of national weather agencies send climate data to their country’s health officials but less than one in four health ministries use the information to protect people from risks such as extreme heat, the report found. “Climate change is an unprecedented threat to human health,” said Madeleine Thomson, the head of climate impacts and adaptation at the Wellcome, a charity that funds health research, who helped write the report. “Many countries are already having to deal with the dangerous repercussions of record-breaking temperatures. Yet most are ill-prepared.” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/nov/02/world-ill-prepared-to-stop-climate-crisis-reversing-progress-on-health-weather-data-heat-warning-services
