Climate Change and Safe Drinking Water

From Healthcare Triage.

In our last climate episode we took a look at how climate change affects the spread of infectious disease. Unfortunately, that isn’t the end of our discussion of disease on a warming planet. Waterborne diseases are already a serious public health threat. As climate change continues and increases intense rainfall, periods of drought, and temperatures, our struggle with waterborne diseases is going to increase, too.
