Feds: Climate change to cause 'irreversible' health risks in U.S.


www.usatoday.com

An Environmental Protection Agency report released Thursday warns that global warming will increase disease and other health problems nationwide in coming decades.
"Climate change poses real risks to human health," says the EPA's Joel Scheraga. Some of the environmental effects will be irreversible, he says. The report details health impacts ranging from Hantavirus to wildfires to asthma, all increased by climate change.

How can this be? I thought climate change was a delusion?


I said this in another thread:

Humans continue to suck up the carbon from the earth that took millions of years for nature to produce, most in the form of oil and coal and burn it. Climate change and global warming may not entirely be man-made or the result of releasing carbon, however the human race has by these processes in rather short time released far more carbon than nature would have in eons.

We continue to have a greater demand on what there is less and less of, it is no wonder that this dependence on carbon will bring economic destruction as well as accelerated global warming and eventually climate change to all nations on this planet. Accepting this reality now or when it is far to late hardly matters at this point in time... Debate may be over as it is relatively pointless now.

Rest assured though, that nature is quite resilient and has proven long before the infestation of humans that it can and will find a way to return the world to a balanced climate.
