Doctors Call for Action on Climate Change

With the election looming, Doctors for the Environment Australia (DEA) is urging its members to participate in a clarion call for action on climate change. DEA has issued a poster, “Doctors Call for Strong Climate Action”, for members to display in their workplaces. The organisation says bold action on air pollution, drought, extreme weather and bushfires is needed to promote health and livelihoods. Its website features fact sheets on everything from the health effects of heatwaves, to information on divestment resources; links to health-climate conferences; and videos advising subscribers what they can do to help the environment.
