Climate Change March

By Eleanor Evans

Over the weekend doctors from around the country marched to support the urgent need to act on climate change on health grounds in anticipation of the negotiations about to start in Paris.  We all had are own reasons for marching.  One of mine is the knowledge that the graph below is expected to shift to the right by 4-6 degrees by the end of the century if Climate Change is left unaddressed.

Who did I march with?  One of the authors of my medical examination book, Professor Nicholas Talley now RACP President, Professor Fiona Stanley who has a hospital named after her and my beloved SA colleagues.  So proud!

  1. It was a beautiful day to march. We were nearby the Doctors for the Environment in Victoria Square.. Probably do no more than raise awareness, but that in itself is useful. Our new PM just can’t seem to get past the brick wall. The Berlin wall came down!
