The climate crisis is creating the perfect infectious disease storm

Climate change is in the news all the time these days, and for good reason. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report released earlier this year, which reflects the opinion of 234 experts from 195 countries, made for sobering reading. By 2040 we will cross a key threshold that will have catastrophic consequences for humanity.

This threshold is a 1.5°C increase in global mean temperature above pre-industrial levels. The report states, “It is clear that human impact has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land.” It also noted that we are near a tipping point where we will have passed the point where we can reverse trajectory towards extremely negative consequences for life on Earth, including us.
