UN Climate Conference: Climate expert Hertig: "In hot summers we assume several thousand heat deaths in Germany"

Ms. Hertig, the topic of health should now receive more attention at the climate conference, for example through a separate "Health Day" on December 3rd. Is that enough? There will also be a “Health Pavilion” at COP 28 in Dubai, where a variety of health topics will be addressed over two weeks. This is important and makes me happy. The question, however, is whether it will ultimately remain a pure information event or actually lead to political decisions.

What do you think? It's difficult to estimate, but I'm skeptical because we haven't been very successful in other areas of climate protection efforts so far.
