This week in climate change: Looking beyond Bali

The Bali conference ended last weekend with a compromise that many hope will pave the way for a global approach to climate change. Some of the top news stories this week explored the agreement reached by conference attendees and looked at future directions for global negotiation.

Among the news stories following up on the conclusion of the Bali conference reported recently via APHA's National Public Health Week News Twitter are these headlines:

- In U-turn, U.S. agrees to global warming deal

- Climate Change Conference in Bali Officially Kicks Off New Round of Negotiations

- Simple numbers to shape climate talks

- China urges U.S. on climate control

It was nice to see the U.S. finally get spanked on an international stage for standing in the way of climate progress. Now we just need to swap being a leading nation in emissions for being a world leader in mitigating and adapting to climate impacts. Finding ways to adapt to the expected health impacts of climate change could not only benefit regional populations in the U.S. but also populations experiencing similar impacts around the world.
