Professor Tony McMichael, one of the pioneers of research and policy relating to the human health effects of anthropogenic climate change (CC) has provides the following 3 seminal statements:
'...it is unlikely that there will be any/many entirely new adverse health outcomes, but rather a worsening of existing health problems, through a change in patterns.'
'There is need for good, critical, thinking and research within each particular population setting, as to what are likely to be the "early and most reasonably attributable health impacts of climate change."'
'...human health can - indeed should - be viewed as the real "bottom line" of climate change consequences.'
