Physician says our warming climate is making us sick

patzLGDr. Jonathan Patz says climate change is the most serious environmental and public health threat we’ve ever faced. The Director of Global Environmental Health at the University of Wisconsin was in Missoula recently to speak about that threat. Patz is also a lead author with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that won the 2007 Nobel peace prize.
In this feature interview, Patz talks with News Director Sally Mauk about the health effects of climate change – and what we can do about it. Patz was one of the first researchers to study those health effects.
