[Comment] Offline: Australia leads on climate and health
“Now is the moment to make our voices heard.” Professor Nicholas Talley was speaking in Sydney last week at the launch of Doctors for Climate Action, an initiative led by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). Nicholas Talley is not an obvious climate activist. He is an academic gastroenterologist who is currently President of the RACP. He wears a tie (unusual in Australia). The digital campaign he was inaugurating, together with Anthony Capon, a member of The Lancet’s Commission on Planetary Health, followed publication of a global consensus statement endorsed by international health and medical organisations (currently 51, including the American Medical Association).
