Climate change is today’s theme for National Public Health Week to draw attention to one of the greatest threats to public health. Our Climate Health Action Team created this comic with Seattle artist Mita Mahato to illustrate how climate change is already having serious impacts on our health here in King County and what we can do to prevent further harm.
For more information about the health impacts of climate change on people in our region and the role of public health in addressing climate change, our Climate Health Action Team has published a Blueprint for Addressing Climate Change and Health.
The comic was developed by the Climate Health Action Team, Public Health – Seattle & King County with artwork by Mita Mahato and writing by Meredith Li-Vollmer.
