In December the president of the World Medical Association, Dr Leonid Eidelman, said reversing climate change could be the greatest health accomplishment of the 21st century.
The AMA says ‘climate change will cause injury and mortality from increasingly severe weather events’
Eidelman said if doctors want to fully uphold the Declaration of Geneva’s creed that “the health and wellbeing of my patient will be my first consideration”, they needed to take an active role in defending their patients from the adverse effects of climate change.
Doctors around the world take climate change seriously. We are not interested in the politics. We focus on the science. The evidence. The facts.
