This has been a source of controversy for a number of reasons, including the overcrowding and violence in youth detention facilities, the prosecution of youths as adults and the long term consequences of incarceration on the individual's chances for success in adulthood. Inthe United Nations Human Rights Committee criticized the United States for about ten judicial abuses, including the mistreatment of juvenile inmates.
Some existing health threats will intensify and new health threats will emerge. Not everyone is equally at risk. Important considerations include age, economic resources, and location.
Preventive and adaptive actions, such as setting up extreme weather early warning systems and improving water infrastructure, can reduce the severity of these impacts, but there are limits to the effectiveness of such actions in the face of some projected climate change threats.
Climate change presents a global public health problem, with serious health impacts predicted to manifest in varying ways in different parts of the world. Public health in the U. Health effects of these disruptions include increased respiratory and cardiovascular disease, injuries and premature deaths related to extreme weather events, changes in the prevalence and geographical distribution of food- and waterborne illnesses and other infectious diseases, and threats to mental health.
Our Changing Climate ; and rising sea levels that intensify coastal flooding and storm surge Ch. Key drivers of vulnerability include the attributes of certain groups age, socioeconomic status, race, current level of health — see Ch.
Indigenous Peoples for examples of health impacts on vulnerable populations and of place floodplains, coastal zones, and urban areasas well as the resilience of critical public health infrastructure.
Multi-stressor situations, such as impacts on vulnerable populations following natural disasters that also damage the social and physical infrastructure necessary for resilience and emergency response, are particularly important to consider when preparing for the impacts of climate change on human health.
Copy link to clipboard Key Message 1: Wide-ranging Health Impacts Climate change threatens human health and well-being in many ways, including impacts from increased extreme weather events, wildfire, decreased air quality, threats to mental health, and illnesses transmitted by food, water, and disease-carriers such as mosquitoes and ticks.
Some of these health impacts are already underway in the United States. The key messages were developed during technical discussions and expert deliberation at a two-day meeting of the eight chapter Lead Authors, plus Susan Hassol and Daniel Glick, held in Boulder, Colorado May; through multiple technical discussions via six teleconferences from January through Juneand an author team call to finalize the Traceable Account draft language on Oct 12, ; and through other various communications on points of detail and issues of expert judgment in the interim.
The author team also engaged in targeted consultations during multiple exchanges with Contributing Authors, who provided additional expertise on subsets of the key message. These discussions were held after a review of the technical inputs and associated literature pertaining to human health, including a literature review, 1 workshop reports for the Northwest and Southeast United States, and additional technical inputs on a variety of topics.
Description of evidence base The key message and supporting text summarizes extensive evidence documented in several foundational technical inputs prepared for this chapter, including a literature review 1 and workshop reports for the Northwest and Southeast United States.
Nearly 60 additional technical inputs related to human health were received and reviewed as part of the Federal Register Notice solicitation for public input. The effects of decreased ozone air quality on human health have been well documented concerning projected increases in ozone, 2345678910 even with uncertainties in projections owing to the complex formation chemistry of ozone and climate change, precursor chemical inventories, wildfire emission, stagnation episodes, methane emissions, regulatory controls, and population characteristics.
The effects of increased temperatures and atmospheric CO2 concentration have been documented concerning shifts in flowering time and pollen initiation from allergenic plants, elevated production of plant-based allergens, and health effects of increased pollen concentrations and longer pollen seasons.
The effects of wildfire on human health have been well documented with increase in wildfire frequency 1831323334351036 leading to decreased air quality 373839404142 and negative health impacts.
The effects of temperature extremes on human health have been well documented for increased heat waves, 46474849 which cause more deaths, 5051 hospital admissions 525354 and population vulnerability. The effects of weather extremes on human health have been well documented, particularly for increased heavy precipitation, which has contributed to increases in severe flooding events in certain regions.
Floods are the second deadliest of all weather-related hazards in the United States. Climate is one of the factors that influence the range of disease vectors; 626364 a shift in the current range may increase interactions with people and affect human health. There has been extensive research concerning the effects of climate change on water- and food-borne disease transmission.
There are also multiple studies associating extreme precipitation events with waterborne disease outbreaks. Our Changing Climateprovides a strong argument for climate change impacts on waterborne disease by analogy. There are multiple studies associating extreme precipitation events with waterborne disease outbreaks and strong climatological evidence for increasing frequency and intensity of extreme precipitation events in the future.
The scientific literature modeling the projected impacts of climate change on waterborne disease is somewhat limited, however.Online United States History II US History II picks up after the Civil War, in a period known as Reconstruction, and covers every significant theme in American society up to and including the post-9/11 era.
