Lessons from COVID can help with the Climate Crisis

  • Health

Our communities will experience extreme weather events with infrastructure destruction that impairs healthcare delivery, worsening food insecurity, increased poverty in our most vulnerable neighbours, negative effects on our air and water quality, social upheavals driven by climate crisis refugees and new epidemics from “old “ pathogens like cholera and malaria.

My hope is that all levels of government will use the learning and changes demanded by the COVID crisis to tackle the climate crisis. People in our communities have shown that they can make massive lifestyle changes.
