Climate Change and Your Health

Solomon Hsiang, Lab co-director and an associate professor of Public Policy at the University of California Berkeley, explains the correlation of people's health and the temperature. "We see more people getting ill when it’s very, very cold and then also when it’s very, very hot," Hsiang explains. "The thing that really matters for whether you are a winner or a loser is what is your temperature today." As climate change shifts the distribution of hot and cold days, the health of populations in places that are already warm stands to be harmed.
