Current emissions of greenhouse gases put the world on track for warming of more than 2 degrees Celsius, a level that increases the risk of potentially severe climate change impacts on health. Climate change is increasing risks to the health of Canadians, but not all populations and communities will be affected by climate change equally. Existing health inequities are exacerbated by climate change impacts and adaptations may inadvertently perpetuate inequities if broader social, political and economic factors are not considered. https://zoom.us/webinar/register/5615786815629/WN_JAjURi62TLq0CQlEF7DY9w
