The current debate about energy policy in Australia is firmly centred on energy costs and reliability. These are prominent issues for public health, given the morbidity and mortality related to heatwaves and cold weather, especially in disadvantaged communities. However, this policy discourse neglects the more significant health effects arising from global climate change GCC associated with fossil energy use. GCC is potentially the defining challenge to public health in the 21st century. Life on earth is dependent on naturally occurring greenhouse gases GHGs , especially methane and carbon dioxide CO 2 , which are modulated by a complex carbon cycle.
Climate change presents perhaps the most profound challenge ever to have confronted human social, political, and economic systems. The stakes are massive, the risks and uncertainties severe, the economics controversial, the science besieged, the politics bitter and complicated, the psychology puzzling, the impacts devastating, the interactions with other environmental and non-environmental issues running in many directions. This article summarizes the entire work which brings together a representation of the best scholars on climate change and society. It introduces the key topics, themes, layers, and issues related to climate change. It concludes with a discussion of the structure of the book. It begins with the science that first identified climate change as a problem, and how it is received by and in society and government.
Debates over the merits and demerits of globalisation for health are increasingly polarised. Conclusions range from globalisation being essentially positive for health, albeit with a need to smooth out some rough edges, to one of utter condemnation, with adverse effects on the majority of the world's population. Anyone wading into this debate is immediately confronted by seemingly irreconcilable differences in ideology, opinion and interests. Both camps agree that global changes are occurring, and with them many of the determinants of population health status. Two difficult questions arise: i What are the health impacts of these changes; and ii how can we respond more effectively to them? To move beyond the stand-offs that have already formed within the health community, this paper reviews the main empirical evidence that currently exists, summarises key points of debate that remain, and suggests some ways forward for the research and policy communities.
Climate change is widely regarded as one of the most serious global health threats of the 21st century. Its impacts will be disproportionately borne by the most disadvantaged populations, including indigenous peoples. Climate change threatens to exacerbate these processes, adding future insult to historical and contemporary injury. Yet the challenges posed by climate change are accompanied by considerable opportunities to advance indigenous rights and reduce health disparities. Climate change is widely regarded as a serious threat to public health globally.

Climate change is already having an effect on the spread of infectious diseases beyond their typical geographic reach. Often, the cross border spread of infectious diseases is further exacerbated by the lack of global governance, policies or a consensus to mitigate climate change. As a result, the current and future burden on humans, animals and plants is significant, especially if these infectious diseases cause large scale outbreaks. This collection brings together in one place articles outlining those diseases and their vectors that are likely to spread or are already spreading across borders due to the effects of climate change.
As a society, we have structured our day-to-day lives around historical and current climate conditions. We are accustomed to a normal range of conditions and may be sensitive to extremes that fall outside of this range. Climate change could affect our society through impacts on a number of different social, cultural, and natural resources.

There is growing evidence that the planet's climate is changing at a pace and level never before witnessed by humankind. The concentration of CO 2 in the atmosphere is unprecedented, temperatures are increasing practically all over the planet, the polar icecaps are melting, and the ocean levels are rising 1. From the thermodynamic point of view, the increase in the atmosphere's temperature involves an enormous accumulation of heat that tends to intensify energy exchanges between land, ocean, and atmosphere 2 , producing extreme climate events like droughts, floods, and heat waves. Yet the consequences of these phenomena for health are not obvious, direct, or immediate. While climate change can produce extreme, unexpected, and sometimes catastrophic events, an unusual event is not necessarily the result of climate change. The appearance of penguins on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro can be viewed as one such unusual event, although frequent.
