Carvalho states health experts say Australia is falling behind
comparable countries because they have no national plan to tackle health impacts of a warming planet. Linnenluecke says her
team has put together the MJA-Lancet Countdown on health and climate change and they are looking at indicators that are
essential for Australia to understand its progress on climate change and health. She says they looked at climate change
impacts and what they can do to respond. She says there was a lot of dire impacts on people in their livelihoods after the
bushfires. Linnenluecke says there are around 400 deaths attributed to smoke inhalation. She says they have evidence that there is a link between climate change and bushfire risk. Carvalho says the Federal Government would say its meeting its
targets under the Paris Agreement. Linnenluecke says they have also released a policy briefing alongside their report.
