Climate Change and Health: Lessons learned from Older Americans

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Featured by EPA a member of the U.S. Global Change Research Program

EPA researchers assess the vulnerability of older Americans to climate change in a new report titled “Climate Change and Older Americans: State of the Science. By investigating the relationship between climate change stressors and vulnerability to at-risk life stages, EPA researchers are helping to inform communities and others so they can be better prepared to protect human health.

Explore the connections between what is expected to be an increase in the population of older Americans living in places relatively more affected by climate change on EPA's It All Starts with Science blog.

 
Carbon Dioxide at NOAA’s Mauna Loa Observatory reaches new milestone: Tops 400 ppm Print E-mail
Carbon dioxide tops 400ppm

On May 9, 2013, the daily mean concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere surpassed 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time since measurements began in 1958 at Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii.

Before the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century, global average CO2 was about 280 ppm. During the last 800,000 years, CO2 fluctuated between about 180 ppm during ice ages and 280 ppm during interglacial warm periods. Today’s rate of increase is more than 100 times faster than the increase that occurred when the last ice age ended.

A recent EPA report, referred to as the 20 Watersheds Report, combines climate change models and watershed simulations to develop a better understanding of what changes to streams and rivers we might expect over the next several decades.

Read more about how EPA researchers are using climate models and watershed simulations to better understand how climate change will affect streams and rivers on the It All Starts with Science blog.

EPA is marking the 43rd Earth Day by making extra efforts to expand the conversation on climate change. All this week, EPA will be highlighting its climate change research on the It All Starts with Science blog.

To kick off the week, hear what EPA's own Dr. Andrew Miller (Associate Director of Climate for the agency's air, climate, and energy research program) had to say on how EPA's work supports the protection of human health and the environment.
