Climate change and the people's health: the need to exit the consumptagenic system

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The world has warmed to dangerous levels and the attendant disruption to the Earth system is profound. The climate change-induced bushfires in Australia have resulted in almost 30 deaths, tens of thousands displaced from their homes, up to 1·25 billion animals dead, and pristine landscapes destroyed. Globally, there are more frequent and severe extreme weather events. While Australia burned, the worst monsoon rains in decades caused landslides and floods in Indonesia, killing at least 70 people. In 2019, typhoons and heatwaves killed and injured thousands of people across Africa, Japan, India, China, Europe, and the USA
