LEADING ON CLIMATE CHANGE: HOW HEALTHCARE LEADERS STOP GLOBAL WARMING
Hospitals and health systems contribute 10% of the greenhouse gas emissions from the United States. Particulate emissions from fossil fuels kill 8 million people annually today. The impacts of climate change will kill many more and lead to terrible health impacts for an even larger number.
Climate change is a disaster for human health.
This book first informs healthcare leaders about the issues and how their industry is being pressured to respond by investors, workers, customers, and the government.
