On June 23, 2015, CBC News online had an article titled "Climate change called 'medical emergency'". The article discusses the recently released Lancet report on climate change and global health. The report indicates that direct health impacts arise from more intense and frequent extreme weather events; indirect impacts arise from air pollution, food insecurity, changes in patterns of infectious diseases, malnutrition, conflicts and displacement.
On June 8, 2015, the BBC featured an article on air quality in commercial planes ("How safe is air quality on commercial planes?" by Jim Reed and Adam Eley). The article discusses fume events - instances where oil fumes from the engine move into the cabin. According to CAA figures, since 2010 there have been more than 1300 reports of fumes or smoke inside passenger aircraft operated by a British Airline. The extent to which the fumes cause adverse health effects (called 'aerotoxic syndrome') is still the subject of debate.
