Health Threat: Bug-Borne Illnesses Spreading With Climate Change


www.foxnews.com

Tree-munching beetles, malaria-carrying mosquitoes and deer ticks that spread Lyme disease are three living signs that climate change is likely to exact a heavy toll on human health.

These pests and others are expanding their ranges in a warming world, which means people who never had to worry about them will have to start. And they are hardly the only health threats from global warming.

Okay let's try to keep "human caused global warming" out of this. This is purely climate change.

Climate change is as natural as the Earth is.

Okay then! So the Earth is getting hotter (for whatever reason *glare*) and this is allowing dangerous bugs to spread all over the planet, to areas where the were once never able to go.
I find this frightening. With all the things we must worry about, let's add some nasty bug-borne diseases in there.

It's like were living in a catastrophe soup.

How does this have anything to do with the end times? you do realise how many epidemics there have been since the bible was written? maybe i didn't read your post right...Anyway,god they can really attempt to find anything and link it to climate change...its getting boring now.
