Today, scientist argue over the consequences of global warming. Scientist say that the heating of the atmosphere can influence many health problems. Some of the related problems due to global warming are death to heat waves and other climate changes, and infectious diseases. With the atmosphere temperature rising, we all will be at risk. The climate not only harms our bodies, it can also harm our crops and waters. Floods and droughts associated with global warming can undermine our health in other ways. The heat that is produced can damage our crops. The temperature will allow our crops to be infected with diseases and infestations such as pests and weeds. By destroying our crops, this can lead to malnutrition world …show more content…
Malaria already kills 3,000 people, mostly children, every day. Since 1990, when the hottest decade on record began, outbreaks of locally transmitted malaria have occurred in Florida and other states in the
U.S. Conditions like Florida and other states with a high range of hot spells are perfect for misquotes. For years, scientist have been theorizing about the effects of global warming and coming up with new ideas and solutions to put a hold on global warming. The determination on health for humans will depend on a large extent on the steps taken to prepare for the dangers. Some scientist have come up with the "ideal strategy."
The ideal defensive strategy would have multiple components. One of these multiple components include surveillance systems that would promptly spot the emergence or resurgence of infectious diseases or vectors that carry them. Scientist believe that a discovery could quickly trigger measures that could control vector proliferation without harming the environment, advising the public about self-protection, and provide vaccines
(when they become available) for populations at risk and deliver the treatments promptly.
A second component would focus on the predicting when climatological conditions become conductive to disease outbreaks, so risk can be minimized. A third component of strategy would attack global warming itself. Human activities that contribute to heating must be limited. Forests and
