LatestNewsAboutInfluenceOfClimateChange

(2019-04-03 15:23:10)

Climate change is having a major impact on global health. Scientists predict that a devastating heat wave sweeping across Europe in 2003 killed tens of thousands of people. Many are elderly people with limited mobility and some already suffer from chronic diseases. But climate change has made this extreme weather more prevalent, and its impact will not be limited to the elderly and the sick. According to the latest reports, climate warming not only directly threatens lives, g235 galvanized steel but also causes billions of hours of labor loss, increases conditions for the spread of infectious diseases and reduces crop yields.

From Report

The report, published last December in Lancet, presents the latest findings of Lancet Countdown. Lancet Countdown is an alliance of the International Research Organization (IRO) in cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The organization tracks the impact of climate change on human health and the government’s response to climate change. “It affects everyone around the world—every single person, every single population. No country is immune,” says Nick Watts, executive director of the Lancet Countdown and one of many co-authors of the report. “We have been seeing these impacts for some time now.”

 

Secondly, indirect influence. For example, rising temperatures have increased the geographical range of organisms that transmit dengue fever, malaria and cholera. Dengue virus is transmitted by Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. The “infectivity” of dengue virus, a measure of the ease of transmission of pathogens by disease vectors, reached a record high in 2016. From the 1980s to the 2010’s, the proportion of coastal areas in the Baltic States and areas in the northeastern United States suitable for the transmission of Vibrio bacteria (including those causing cholera) increased by 24% and 27%, respectively. In the African highlands, the environmental adaptability of malaria-transmitting Plasmodium falciparum increased by nearly 21% from the 1950s to the 2010’s.

 

The third, Climate change also threatens food security. The report found that our planet still produces enough food for the world, but crop yields in 30 countries have declined due to extreme weather.
