From the department of bad timing…

Update: A much better headline, from Overlawyered:

“Ask Your Doctor Whether Your Political Views Are Right For You”

GPs ‘should offer climate change advice to patients’ – Telegraph
The Climate and Health Council, a collaboration of worldwide health organisations including the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal Society of Medicine, believes there is a direct link between climate change and better health.

Their controversial plan would see GPs and nurses give out advice to their patients on how to lower their carbon footprint.

The Council believes that climate change “threatens to radically undermine the health of all peoples”.

Wonder if this was a pre-programmed press release or if someone isn’t following the news.
