This figure appears in chapter executive-summary of the The Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment report.
The diagram shows specific examples of how climate change has already affected or will continue to affect human health in the United States. The examples listed in the first column are those described in each underlying chapter’s Exposure Pathway diagram (see Guide to the Report). Moving from left to right along one health impact row, the three middle columns show how climate drivers affect an individual or a community’s exposure to a health threat and the resulting change in health outcome. The overall climate impact is summarized in the final gray column. For a more comprehensive look at how climate change affects health, and to see the environmental, institutional, social, and behavioral factors that play an interactive role in determining health outcomes, see chapters 2–8.
