PLOS Zeroes In on Climate Change

This month PLOS is unfurling a special collection on climate change and health, addressing the health effects of extreme heat and flooding, infectious disease risks, the health benefits of greenhouse gas mitigation policies and more.
Guest edited by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Jonathan Patz and Columbia University’s Madeleine Thomson, the first articles include a study led by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s David Abel on rising mortality associated with the growing demand for increased air conditioning.
Another study, from Christopher Weyant of Stanford University and colleagues, predicts reduced nutritional content in crops attributed to higher levels of climate-change associated carbon dioxide.
