Abstract

This chapter seeks to identify, describe and analyse the solutions to the health effects of climate change that might apply on a broader scale. The association among rising energy costs from fossil fuels, economic crisis and unburnable carbon is described. The climate change mitigation, adaptation and shift in values are discussed. The potential of devising a "social vaccine" to protect civilization is argued.
