Reducing carbon emissions has been the passionate focus of climate change activists, and understandably so. But what about the constellation of human health impacts due to the burning of fossil fuels?
Kate Madigan speaks with Dr. Elizabeth Del Buono, MD and co-founder of Michigan Clinicians for Climate Action, about the human health impacts flowing from fossil fuel combustion.
