Interactive Map of Climate Change and Health
The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has a user-friendly, interactive map on the threat of climate change to health. “Climate change is one of the most serious public health threats facing the nation, but few people are aware of how it can affect them. Children, the elderly, and communities living in poverty are among the most vulnerable.” The map provides state specific data on threats from air pollution, extreme heat, infectious diseases, drought and flooding.
