Most Tasmanians are aware extreme weather events of recent years were made more severe by the changing
climate, and are likely to become more common and more intense over the next few decades.

As Tasmanians grapple with an under-resourced health system, we need to keep in mind that climate change and extreme weather events are bad for the economy and for health, and place further strain on our health system.

We also need to acknowledge the health system itself contributes to the
problem.
