Climate Change & Health

Climate change threatens our health now and will impact our way of life in the future. We can see some of these changes today in the United States and right here in SLO County, including increased temperature, extreme storms, wildfire, rising sea level, decreased air quality, and drought.

Climate change affects everyone. People at greater risk include children, seniors, people with chronic diseases, outdoor workers, people living in poverty, and some communities of color. For more information and to get involved, visit
