      on how first responders need to be prepared for the adverse health effects of climate change - which are already happening. Increased incidence of asthma, heatstroke for seniors, emergence of transmisssion vectors for disease in previously "safe" areas, malnutrition due to rising food costs, etc.

      If the Supremes do decide to hear a case that bears on the more common greenhouse gases, they'll have to acknowledge that the medical community is already acting on the conclusion that climate change is adversely affecting human health.
