Ten documents in the library in the category Health

Health: Health is both directly an indirectly linked to energy use and therefore to climate issues. Coal today is the principal source of energy production and is highly damaging to health. Hospitals are directly linked to a population's health, and are large consumers of energy. All of the underlying activities that support hospitals - R&D, production of drugs and medical machinery, training of personnel, etc. - are also large consumers of energy.

Massive climate documentation library. A “must” reference for diverse quality information. Few areas can benefit as much from Open Access as climate change research: the combination of public, scientific, and governmental interest with the mounting misinformation, unsubstantiated opinions, and unsourced data make public access to original, well-reported, and peer-reviewed climate change research of utmost importance. An international reference. moreless
