The events that set climate change in motion occurred decades ago. How do we analyze the past and factor in the variable of chance when trying to predict future climate and weather events?
Collaborative Climate Research Effort to Be Conducted in Partnership with Academic Institutions, Science Organizations, Community Leaders, and Industry Representatives. Dr. Perry Sheffield of the Institute for Exposomic Research will lead the Health and Safety Workgroup
Researchers from the Mount Sinai Institute for Exposomic Research found that exposure to heat and air pollution was associated with lower birth weight, an indicator for lifetime development.
Drs. Just and Sheffield discuss how air pollution and climate change are both the metaphoric storm clouds on the horizon and how the COVID-19 pandemic may have brought some unexpected silver linings to the public health efforts in this topic.
