In Pennsylvania’s Hotly Contested 17th Congressional District, Climate Change Takes a Backseat to Jobs and Economic Development

Democrats talk about tackling climate change in terms of the jobs it might help create, and Republicans want more fossil fuel development and favor “energy independence.”

BEN AVON, Pa.—On a Saturday morning late last month, in this tree-lined suburb west of Pittsburgh, Chris Deluzio, a Democrat running for Congress, met with residents and supporters at the Anchor & Anvil coffee shop, a community-oriented business on a peaceful street.

To Equitably Confront Climate Change, Cities Need to Include Public Health Agencies in Planning Adaptations

Studies show health agencies often are sidelined from cities’ climate plans, despite being critical to making them fair. Barcelona shows how including them can make a difference.

Cities must better involve their public health agencies in plans to prepare for the impacts of climate change if their adaptations are to equitably help their citizens, according to a recent study in PLOS Climate. City officials must prepare for increasing threats to the physical and mental health of the most vulnerable urban residents both from direct effects, like heat-related illnesses and infectious diseases, and indirect effects, like the disruption of food supplies, public health experts warn.
