"Nature Bats Last: A Warming Earth Will Exact Adverse Health Effects But Our Responsibilities Are . . . ?" (May 25th)

In early April the White House released a report titled, "The Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment."  The report, unfortunately, received limited attention in DC health care policy circles.   If you're interested in an summary of the 400 page document (though I highly recommend you read it in its entirety) and a few comments concerning the extent to which federal health care agencies and professional health care associations have been interested in the "climate penalty," please see this essay via the Altarum Institute.
