EPA: climate change poses risk to health and way of life

If this wasn’t coming from the Bush-EPA it might be less alarming. The Bush-EPA has consistently downplayed climate change, siding with whatever nutty nonsense industry promotes so it’s surprising to see.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, under fire for apparently discounting the impact of climate change, on Thursday said global warming poses real risk to human health and the American way of life.

Risks include more heat-related deaths, more heart and lung diseases due to increased ozone and health problems related to hurricanes, extreme precipitation and wildfires, the agency said in a new report.

“Climate change poses real risk to human health and the human systems that support our way of life in the United States,” the agency’s Joel Scheraga said in a telephone briefing.
