The Health Benefits of Tackling Climate Change: An Executive Summary for The Lancet Series
"The Lancet studies, supported by a global partnership of funders, were undertaken by an international team of researchers with the aim of informing discussions at the 2009 Copenhagen conference of parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Authored by an international group of public health, environmental, and other scientists, each focuses on one sector in which greenhouse-gas emissions need to be reduced. These sectors are household energy use, urban land transport, electricity generation, and food and agriculture. A ﬁfth study reviews the eﬀect on health of short-lived greenhouse pollutants, which are produced in several sectors."
