Scientific data on the increase of Earth’s temperatures are conclusive: The Earth is warming. Climate Change involving warmer temperatures increases the likelihood of diseases caused by microorganisms, animals, and insects. Why? Because more frequent warmer temperatures enlarge the areas where these disease-causing organisms can grow.
We are now seeing diseases caused by microorganisms, animals, and insects in regions where these diseases weren’t reported before. With warmer temperatures, vectors (an insect or other organism that transmits a pathogenic fungus, virus, or bacterium) are able to survive, and the disease is carried in with them. Droughts combined with bouts of heavy precipitation favor population explosions of disease-causing organisms. The world’s poor and children are most affected. More than 90 percent of malaria and diarrhea deaths occur in children 5 years or younger.
