Thank you for including this important topic in EM:RAP.
Hey, lets be skeptics here before we accept "climate change"
It is not lost on the team at EM:RAP that topics that should be argued on a “pure” science basis are not immune to the politics of the rest of the world. We were quite sure that any mention of the health effects of climate change would invoke a negative response from a small, but energetic group of subscribers. Indeed we have already received some personal criticism for even mentioning the topic.
Rather than relitigating these debates on EM:RAP and detracting from our core mission of Emergency Medical education we provide some references for further discussion. Many of these resources have links to robust communities engaged in this science and political discussion. We encourage the continued review of the ongoing science and provide some references for these activities. The current comments section on this EM:RAP chapter will be placed on hold to avoid further going down the rabbit hole.
