Addressing Effects Of Climate Change, Food Insecurity Critical To Global Health

New York Times: Letter to the Editor: A Food Crisis and Climate Change
Neal Keny-Guyer, chief executive of Mercy Corps

“The world is facing one of the largest food crises in more than 70 years, and climate change is only making it worse. Between 2030 and 2050, climate change could kill an additional 250,000 people every year, from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea, and heat stress. … We must address the urgent effects of climate change through a combination of international action, national policies, and strong local programs to build stronger, more resilient, and more peaceful communities” (4/2).
