Abbott and Costello on Climate Change
Professor Anthony Costello: climate change biggest threat to humans - Times Online
Climate change poses the biggest threat to human health in the 21st century but its full impact is not being grasped by the healthcare community or policymakers, a medical report concludes.
The report, compiled by a commission of academics from University College London and published in The Lancet, warns that climate change risks huge death tolls caused by disease, food and water shortages and poor sanitation.
Chris Abbott, a 30-year-old academic, said he was "punched in the face" and then "smashed" across the head with a riot shield as he sat on Bishopsgate during the 1 April protests. Chris Abbott:: "You do not expect to be beaten up by the police when you are exercising your right to protest on something as important as climate change"
