What can I do?

What can I do?

  • Inform yourself about the basic science of climate change, the health benefits of taking action, and the urgency of doing so
  • Advise your patients. Better diet and more walking and cycling will improve their health and reduce their carbon emissions
  • Save energy and money through house insulation, turning off appliances and lights and reductions in use of goods and services
  • Drive and fly less, walk or cycle more, teleconference/webcast.
  • Eat local food, less meat, and less processed food - a low carbon diet is a healthy diet. Drink tap water
  • Advocate locally (see below)
  • Agitate for personal carbon entitlements and financial incentives to reduce carbon costs
  • Advocate a climate change agenda at all meetings
  • Ally yourself with other health professionals
