British doctors soon may be giving patients advice on how to reduce their carbon emissions:
Doctors should give patients advice on climate change, a leading body of medical experts has claimed.
The Climate and Health Council, a collaboration of worldwide health organisations including the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal Society of Medicine, believes there is a direct link between climate change and better health.
Their controversial plan would see GPs and nurses give out advice to their patients on how to lower their carbon footprint.
As Mark Steyn points out, getting patients to die reduces their carbon footprints almost entirely, and Britain’s National Health Service has been doing a pretty good job of that.
