This chapter focuses on the impact of climate change and stratospheric ozone depletion on health. These changes are the consequence of overload and breakdown of global homeostatic mechanisms. Climate change and ozone depletion demonstrate that the planet is a closed system. Problems like these that are inherently global in nature require a response that is also worldwide. This means that international cooperation will be even more important than in the past, when diseases may have been distributed globally but the causes were essentially local.

Keywords:   global warming, health impact, globalization, climate change, ozone depletion
