AMA Says Climate Crisis (scam) Is A Health Issue Or Something

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

OK, so all the doctors will stop using fossil fuels in their business and personal lives, right? Give up AC? Downsize their luxury homes? End the use of all the plastics in their medical operations?

Climate change is a public health crisis, AMA says

The American Medical Association has declared climate change a public health crisis that threatens the health and well-being of all people. The new policy mobilizes the AMA to advocate for policies that limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius, reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions aimed at carbon neutrality by 2050, and support rapid implementation and incentivization of clean energy solutions and significant investments in climate resilience through a climate justice lens.

The organization will also develop a strategic plan for enacting its climate change policies, including on how to decarbonize physician practices and the health care industry. The new policy also recognizes the health, safety, and climate risks of current methods of producing fossil fuel-derived hydrogen and the dangers of adding hydrogen to natural gas.

“The scientific evidence is clear – our patients are already facing adverse health effects associated with climate change, from heat-related injuries, vector-borne diseases and air pollution from wildfires, to worsening seasonal allergies and storm-related illness and injuries,” said AMA Board Member Ilse R. Levin, D.O., MPH, in a statement. “Like the COVID-19 pandemic, the climate crisis will disproportionately impact the health of historically marginalized communities. Taking action now won’t reverse all of the harm done, but it will help prevent further damage to our planet and our patients’ health and well-being.”

Really, this is what’s called green-washing, where they make all the right climate cult noises, but, won’t do much of anything. And what little they do do will see the costs passed on. It was cute throwing in the talking point about marginalized communities, which is the current big point, because all these uber-white upper middle class and rich 1st World white folks think that “minorities” cannot possibly do anything on their own. What’s that called?
