Climate Change

  • Climate Change FloodingEarth’s average temperature increased by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit from 1901 to 2016. These temperature changes have led to changes in long-term climate patterns. The changing patterns alter the weather from day to day across the world. Climate change has led to heat waves, heavy precipitation (rain, snow, sleet, hail), flooding and air pollution. These changes could affect human health in serious ways. Climate change has been called “the greatest threat to global health in the 21st century.” Dealing with climate change could be an opportunity to improve health.

    Historical climate change data including extreme heat, historic temperature, and extreme precipitation are available on the MiTracking data portal.
