Why we should be ‘more worried’ about the impact of climate change on our children
It’s been argued for years that climate change has been having an impact on children’s wellbeing.
But now a new study shows that climate changes in the United States have an even more devastating effect on the health of our children.
The researchers say that by 2070, the proportion of children born in the US where they were at high risk of disease, premature birth, or both will double.
This is the conclusion of the largest research into the effects of climate on children in the world.
The paper, published in the journal Health and Development, looked at the impact climate change will have on children born to mothers in the UK.
It found that climate effects will be worse for babies who are born in hotter climates.
In the US, the number of children in extreme weather zones will double, from 13 per 1,000 to 23 per 1.
There are some interesting trends in the results.
The US was the only country where a rise in the temperature was associated with a rise, or worsening, of the number in extreme areas.
In addition, the US had a higher number of high-risk areas.
This may be due to the fact that these areas are less likely to be visited by children who are sick or have medical issues, the researchers say.
There is a lot more work to be done to understand how climate change is affecting our children, and how it will affect their health.
The study is based on data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which asks questions about children’s health in the early years.
Children in the study were born in October and December of each year between 1995 and 2005.
The average number of days in the first trimester was calculated to be 3.4, compared with 4.3 for children born during the second trimester.
The results were calculated on children aged between 2 and 5.
The findings were published in Pediatrics.
The authors found that when climate change was linked to temperature, it increased the likelihood that a child would be born with congenital heart disease or premature birth.
The risk of these conditions increased when the temperature rose by three or more degrees Celsius.
In extreme heat, the increased risk of premature birth increased by 20 per cent, compared to a 20 per-cent increase for a child born in a cooler climate.
The research also found that the impact on child health is greater in regions that are experiencing warmer temperatures, such as the Southwest, the Gulf, and the Rocky Mountains.
The increased risk was also seen in areas where climate change affected more people, such in the South and West.
“Our findings suggest that climate impacts are likely to have an effect on child wellbeing,” said lead author, Dr Rebecca A. Pomerantz, from the University of California, San Francisco.
“In the United Kingdom, the largest and most affected area, climate change had an impact, although this was in a region with very few children.”
The research was funded by the Wellcome Trust and the UK Department of Health and Social Care.
Previous research on climate impacts on children has focused on the effects on their health and wellbeing.
These studies are limited because of the small numbers of children, or the lack of a long-term follow-up.
But the findings are likely useful to future policy makers.
Climate change could be causing climate change, so what’s the best way to respond?
This study was based on a population that had been studied for decades and had been shown to be vulnerable to a wide range of environmental conditions.
The UK has been the focus of much attention from climate change experts, including the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Medicine and the World Health Organisation.
“What’s important for policymakers is to understand that climate affects are going to be more severe in countries with the most vulnerable populations,” Dr Pomerant said.
“And that this is a consequence of climate impacts, not just a consequence.”
It’s important that the UK is at the forefront of this discussion and that the country recognises that we’re all in the same boat, she added.
