Miriam Marlier in National Geographic: In California, extreme heat and ozone pollution hit poor communities hardest
A new study identifies places in the state where the climate-intensified health risks are linked. “We’re exposed to air pollution and extreme heat, often at the same time. Now we’re getting a better sense of how that might aggravate health effects together. That’s really important as we’re thinking about future climate change,” say Miriam Marlier, an environmental health scientist at UCLA.
