Climate Change and Health: Lessons Learned from Older Americans
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.
