The Climate Change Health Risks Facing a Child Born Today: A Tale of Two Futures

The latest Countdown report from the medical journal Lancet lays out the risks ahead, from the womb to adulthood.

Climate Change Risks to a Child Born Today

A child born today faces two possible futures. In one, the world continues to burn fossil fuels, making the child more likely to develop asthma from air pollution, at greater risk of vector-borne diseases, and more vulnerable to anxiety as extreme weather events threaten his community.

In the other, those risks are diminished because the world has responded quickly and adequately to climate change, with a large-scale shift away from fossil fuels.

These two, starkly different paths are the focus of a report published Wednesday by the medical journal The Lancet that shows how the future health of a child born today will be intrinsically linked to climate change, from the womb to adulthood.

"Without accelerated intervention, this new era will come to define the health of people at every stage of their lives," the authors write.
