Lancet Commission: Climate Change is a Medical Emergency

Health and medical professionals meet at the White House today for a summit on climate change and public health.

Similar global findings were just released by the Lancet Commission on Health and Climate, an independent, international and multi-disciplinary research group. VOA’s Rosanne Skirble has the details.
