In the present study, the researchers explain that “natural system changes” such as climate and weather change may not be having a significant direct impact on a large number of human populations as of yet; but there are increasing observations in which the results of climate changes are devastating individual populations.
Pollution create by human industry
When considering pollution create by human industry; which the paper also predicts that such devastations will be “unevenly distributed” and affect disadvantage populations most; so citing “those with pre existing conditions; so especially pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases” will be most at risk; hence among other vulnerable groups such as children or the elderly.
The researchers emphasize that the allergy community should be “knowledgeable” about issues surrounding increase risk from climate change, and understand the effect on allergy and asthma; also be well verse in possible means to mitigate adverse health consequences.
There are a huge number of environmental factors that can worsen a person’s asthma symptoms; also internet searches including climate change, weather change, air pollution, particulates, greenhouse gases, traffic, and insect habitats all show that these issues are at the forefront of many people’s minds.
The duration of pollen seasons has been increasing, resulting in larger amounts of pollen being produce by plants and the earlier onset of pollination seasons. This stretch in pollination seasons has link to increasing global temperatures and higher levels of atmospheric CO2.
Suffers from spikes
Fairbanks North Star Borough in Alaska suffers from spikes in air pollution; so from wildfires and energy source from wood and coal. A number of changes were brought into place when the Fairbanks community voice concerns; which about their respiratory health, and residents of the borough were offer lower cost alternatives to oil and firewood for heating and cooking. Alternative energy sources are also being investigate to supply the community with greener energy.
In India, where women are far more likely to report cases of asthma than men; hence due to exposure to pollutants from cooking with gas or solid fuels indoors; so the 2016 Ujjwala scheme was create to provide cleaner fuel alternatives to those living under the poverty line to improve respiratory health. The scheme has since praise by the World Health Organisation.
Climate change is an intensely politicize issue, and governments face significant challenges; hence when developing and running environmental movements because of “differing opinions on economic and political priorities”; but efforts already taken may help to pave the way for officials to take further action; also protect people from pollutants, irritants, and allergens.
