The medical profession has responded to adverse situations of global reach, such as epidemic diseases and natural disasters. As the world's scientists, governments, and businesses now confront the state of the environment, physicians also must be prepared to respond.
The environment is today's most pressing global issue. Environmental conditions contribute to the presence or intensity of many medical conditions, as with temperature-related morbidity and mortality, health effects of extreme weather events (eg, storms, floods, tornadoes,

water- and food-borne diseases, and vector- and rodent-borne diseases.1,2
