Impacts on Health

From the production and burning of fossil fuels to deforestation and environmentally harmful agricultural practices, humans are changing the planet. Over the last few hundred years, as a species, we have failed in our duty as stewards of the land. As a result of these changes, impacts on our health as well as the health of ecosystems around the world are suffering.

In this section, we’ve done some of the searching for you! Here we’ve compiled some literature that delves into and details the connections between climate change, pollution, and human health.

If you are a TAP member, check out the library for our supply of climate change and prairie restoration-related books!

Physical Science and Reports

For those looking for a bit more detail, this section contains studies and research centered around biological and atmospheric sciences from a range of organizations and individuals. Authors include TAP co-founder, Dr. Chip Taylor, NASA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGRP) and others.

There are years worth of studies out there, but hopefully, this is a good place to start.

Climate, Energy, and Environmental Media

Climate, Energy, and Environmental Media

This section is dedicated to educational media such as videos, graphics, articles, and podcasts to help draw connections between climate, health, ecology, and even economics.

Podcasts

There are many out there, but here are a few to get you started!

How to Save a Planet with scientist and self-proclaimed policy nerd, Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, and climate journalist, Alex Blumberg is an excellent podcast for the climate curious, as they say. In this podcast, the hosts dive into what we need to do to deal with the climate crisis and have fun along the way. Some topics include: individual vs industrial carbon footprint, clearing up recycling questions, indigenous rights and what tribes are doing to restore the land, and more! This is a perfect introduction if you’re interested in climate change.

A Matter of Degrees with Dr. Leah Stokes, author of Short Circuiting Policy and Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and affiliated with the Department of Environmental Science at the University of California, Santa Barbra as well as Dr. Katherine Wilkinson author of All We Can Save, The Drawdown Review, and Between God and Green tackle the powerful forces around climate.  Some episodes include topics such as renewable energy opposition by electric utilities, a just energy transition for the Navajo Nation with Wahleah Johns, and other energy policy implications. 

Climate One, founded by host Greg Dalton, has been facilitating climate science, policy, clean energy, justice, etc. discussions between United Nations representatives, business interests, environmental and justice advocacy groups, fossil fuel industries, governmental officials, and more since 2007.  Since Climate One is approaching 20 years, they have a massive catalog of hundreds of hours of wide-ranging content. Whatever piques your interest around climate, energy, sustainability, or anything in between, there’s probably an episode for that on Climate One.

Documentaries

If topics surrounding the climate are of interest to you, reading the science and reports is an excellent way to deepen your understanding of the information. Through visuals, however, documentaries can evoke great emotion while presenting the facts.

Here are some well-received documentaries on Climate Change and its impacts.

Check back later for updates.
