Special Issue in Atmosphere: Global Change and Health Impact
Climate change is an important global environmental problem that affects the global ecosystem and life on Earth. Other important environmental problems include air pollution, which alters the air we breathe; water pollution, which contaminates the water we drink; soil pollution, which contaminates the food we eat; and ozone depletion, which is associated with harmful UV radiation. Additionally, we are also facing other environmental problems, such as acid rain, deforestation, overpopulation, loss of biodiversity, waste disposal, polar ice melting, ocean acidification, overfishing, and land degradation. All these problems pose major threats to human health and the biosphere in general. According to the World Health Organization, climate change is expected to cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year between 2030 and 2050. Climate-related health risks include injuries and mortality resulting from extreme weather events, heat-related illnesses, respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, water-borne diseases, animal-borne diseases, vector-borne diseases, and food-borne diseases. This Special Issue welcomes studies focusing on global environmental problems and their direct and indirect effects on human health.
