So what exactly does the editor of the British Dental Journal (BDJ) know about climate change? And why should anyone care?
Ahead of the annual United Nations’ climate meeting to be held in Scotland in November, BDJ editor Stephen Hancocks and 18 other medical journal editors recently penned an editorial on climate change which appeared in the 200 or so medical journals including prestigious publications like the New England Journal of Medicine and the Lancet.
“Reflecting the severity of the moment, this editorial appears in health journals across the world. We are united in recognizing that only fundamental and equitable changes to societies will reverse our current trajectory,” they wrote in their essay titled, “Call for Emergency Action to Limit Global Temperature Increases, Restore Biodiversity, and Protect Health.”
What could they be talking about? If only they knew.
