Climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century (Lancet, 2018). Climate change is the long-term shift in weather conditions, such as temperature, precipitation, extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. Climate change is expected to result in warmer temperatures, longer and hotter summers, and more frequent and/or more severe weather events such as hurricanes/tornadoes, thunderstorms, wildfires, floods, and droughts.
The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) began a 3-year Radon: Know Your Level study and awareness campaign in 2015. As a part of this campaign, home owners of detached and semi-detached homes were recruited to determine indoor radon levels in the areas of Windsor-Essex County (WEC). The following report summarizes the findings.
