Health Implications of Technological Responses to Climate Change

Workshop Report,
Report of a workshop held November 29-30, 2000, sponsored by The H. John Heinz III Center for Science, Economics and the Environment, and the Health Effects Institute. 
Most research on climate change has focused on the effects of climate change itself and on ways of lowering carbon dioxide emissions to slow or reverse the course of such change. However, any new or significantly altered technology that is adopted as part of an effort to lower carbon emissions may have other consequences for human health and safety. This exploratory workshop brought together public health specialists and experts in various emerging technologies to discuss potential problems and possible ways of addressing them.
