It’s not only extreme weather, rising sea levels, farming and fresh water which will be impacted by the climate emergency. So will people’s health.
Groups of doctors and other health professionals say climate change and health should be front and centre of this election, and they’ve scored each party’s manifesto.
No surprise, the Green Party came out on top with maximum marks in all categories.
As the doctors themselves say: “Good health for our families, our patients and our communities depends on a stable climate and healthy ecosystems. The next Government’s policies must reflect these pressing concerns.”
For healthy lives on a healthy planet, the choice is clear: vote Green on Thursday.
If not now, when.
