Al Gore helped organize a climate change conference in Atlanta, after the CDC was cancelled.
The Harvard Global Health Institute’s Dr. Ashish Jha, a co-organizer of the Thursday meeting, said a goal of the summit is to make the consequences of climate change seem more tangible to the average person.
“A person might say, ‘if it’s 35 degrees today, and 37 tomorrow, I’m not so bothered.’” Jha told STAT. “But the notion that it’ll harm our health, our children’s health, will connect those dots much more closely.”
