The Fourth National Climate Assessment was released on November 23. This congressionally mandated report focuses on human welfare, societal and environmental elements of climate change, and climate variability as well as human health.
NIEHS identifies Global Environmental Health (GEH) as a part of its strategic themes, recognizing that because environmental health problems cross national boundaries, conducting studies around the world benefits not just those in areas being studied, but all people who suffer from the same or related environmental health problems.
