Global warming directly affects the earth's ecosystem, bringing harm to the human living environment and human health. Worse still, extreme and abnormal weather phenomena brought about by global climate change, such as heatwaves, droughts, floods, freezes, hailstorms, sand and dust storms, etc., cause serious natural disasters, which are enough to cause serious blows to human society. Therefore, it is urgent to slow down global warming, to vigorously carry out research on the relationship between climate change and human health, and to establish a sound monitoring and early warning system for diseases affecting public health.
This Special Issue is open to the subject area of climate change and public health. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
