Global warming can pose health threats.

Killer heat waves, devastating droughts, rising sea levels and fiercer storms are some of what scientists say is coming. Diseases such as West Nile Virus, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Eastern Equine Encephalitis and Lyme disease are spreading to areas that used to be too cold. Doesn't sound too good for the future. http://foodconsumer.org/7777/8888/Non-f_ood_Things_27/020306342007_Global_Warming_Poses_Health_Threats.shtml

We have been warned forever about this. The bible has told us what is going to happen. We just ignored it till it was already happening. It is truely scary but it is here.

another threat is going to be what is found in the glaciers as they keep melting, who knows what killers lie in wait to be released into our oceans and rivers.

Just another reason to eat as healthy as you possibly can and to study skills that may enable you to survive if our societies begin to crumble. Study the herbs and things that can improve your body to stave off the stresses that seem to be looming. Another reason to live much and laugh often while we still can! We can collectively want the earth to correct and adjust the unbalance that we have inflicted on it and perhaps we will still be here when it is all over!

I am not surprised to hear this news as global warming can have much more serious effects than serious natural disasters. I think most of us know that the really natural disasters are caused by global warming but do not know about other health risks like the ones you mentioned and the article mentioned. Hopefully other people will see this article and may try and do even small things to help our environment so we can avoid such problems in the future. Thank you for sharing this link. :-)

Well, I didn't know that global warming will become this big of a problem. I hope the scientists are preparing for this.

Another health threat would be the increase in domoic acid causing harm to the fish supply (and therefore also to the animals and humans who eat fish).
