The Link Between Climate Change and ‘Flesh-Eating’ Bacteria

It’s that time of the year again: when the weather is warm, and people are swarming the beach. That means it’s also the time of year when doctors see a sharp rise in a certain type of “flesh-eating” bacterial infections called vibriosis.

These infections are caused by Vibrio bacteria, which thrive in warm, coastal seawater and often infect widely consumed shellfish species, like oysters. Scientists warn that as climate change causes an increase in sea surface temperatures and a rise in sea levels, Vibrio infections will become more common. This is because warmer, rising waters create an even more welcoming evironment for the deadly pathogen. (snip)

The CDC says that 80 percent of Vibrio infections occur between May and October, when coastal water is warmest. But as coastal water temperatures increase globally, so are cases of Vibrio infections.

“We’re seeing more of these infections early on in the season and later in the season,” said Craig Baker-Austin, a marine microbiologist at the Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science in the United Kingdom. (snip)

Baker-Austin told Live Science that with climate change, “we’re also seeing more extreme weather events, and those can play a big role” in Vibrioproliferation. For example, he said, after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, there was a lot of salt water and fresh water mixed together, and people were wading through it. Because of that, Baker-Austin said, there was a marked increase in vibriosis cases in the region.

Missing is any offered proof that this is mostly/solely caused by Mankind, but, that’s the norm. The Cult of Climastrology just assumes this, which is the opposite of science, and in contradiction to all the previous Holocene warm periods.

But as Austin-Baker said, “There’s more people living by the sea, more people coming into contact with seawater and more people with underlying risk conditions.” Those factors, together with the overall trend of warming seawater and rising seas, mean these heat-loving bacteria are likely to continue to cause more and more vibriosis cases every year. But understanding the risks of infection and taking the appropriate steps to avoid those risks can prevent infection and save your life.

We can fix this with a tax. That’ll stop the sea temps from skyrocketing from 60.9F to 60.94F

    So you agree that the warming Earth is causing problems for humans?

    Reasonable people understand why the Earth is warming.

    “We’re seeing an increase in extreme weather events…for example, after hurricane Katrina..”. That’s funny, because it was what- 12 yrs between “extreme hurricanes” hitting the US?
    Also “resonable people” offer proof of their assertions

    Can a cult be based on science and evidence? The NuCon Denier cult has only one constantly changing belief – at first, the Earth wasn’t warming, then they changed it to the Earth is warming, but it’s natural, finally they will accept that it’s warming from greenhouse gases but that the cure will be worse than the disease. You have one immutable tenet – that collective action to solve a global crisis is verboten.

    It seems “The Cult” is the NuCons that refuse to recognize science. “Flat-Earther” is a cult. Young Earthers is a cult. Snake Handlers is a cult. Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints is a cult. The anti-vaxers is a cult. Christian Science is a cult.

    Your Cult is the most dangerous in human history.

      We have one immutable tenet: that collective action to solve a “global crisis” won’t solve it, but will in fact make things worse.

      This isn’t really a “tenet,” but a conclusion derived from decades of empirical observation of collectivists in action.

    • formwiz says:

      It can be based on false data and Commie propaganda. Global Warming isn’t science. It’s ewhat happens when totalitarians politicize science to get their way.

      Like Hitler did.

    This is a good one-“your cult is the most dangerous in human history.” Of course there’s no proof “climate change “ is any more dangerous now than climate change in the past, it’s merely speculation and computer model projections.
