Got questions about climate change and health?

Washington Post staff writer David Brown will be online Tuesday, Dec. 18, at 1 p.m. ET to discuss a new article on how climate change impacts our health.

He will be joined by Jonathan Patz, an associate professor and director of the Global Environmental Health Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Patz is also a member of APHA’s Environment Section and serves on the advisory committee for the 2008 National Public Health Week.

This article is the latest installment of the Washington Post "In the Greenhouse" series about the science behind climate change.

Log on tomorrow to join the conversation and get involved in this important issue.

I really liked the Post article. It's great to see the mainstream press finally getting on board on this issue. Maybe it will start to trickle down to the rest of America.

I feel like the only way Americans will "get on board" is when it personally starts to effect them in a negative way. The ice caps may melt and the polar bears will die out, but they'll just keep driving their SUVs until their isn't enough power left to blast their A/C or foam their mocha lattes.
