First, you may be asking yourself how diseases and pandemics have anything to do with dangerous gases and atmospheric heating. It’s simple really. There are various types of microbes that eat methane. They live deep underground and they live 30,000 feet into the air. Basically, they are everywhere and they feed off methane hydrates.
The theory goes something like this. The more methane increases it becomes a feeding frenzy for the microbes. What happens when these microbes have more than enough to eat? They multiply. As methane release increases, there is naturally going to be a rapid increase in the microbes that feed.
Through the evolution of bacteria over millions of years you can expect that other species of bacteria can also experience growth. As one species of bacteria rapidly increases, others will follow. I propose in this theory that as the microbes continuously feed on the increased methane hydrates, other bacteria are following the lead, thus, literally thousands of species of bacteria and viruses are experiencing phenomenal growth all over the planet.
I know that Rezlooper covered some of the recent animal attacks in the USA..I tried looking up previous cases of rapid animals actually chasing down other animals/humans..but couldn't find any. From just skimming the topic..it does appear that this is a new symptom--rapid animals usually do not seek out and then chase down things to bite..these animals (in the news reports) appear to be seeking out others and being very aggressive...

Rabies does cause unusual behavior in animals, and may cause aggression (anyone remember "Old Yeller"?)
I think what we're seeing here is a combination of rabies and population density... we've got a lot more people and animals around than in previous decades, and rabid animals are more likely to come into contact with some other living thing simply because there's so darn many of us around.
