Your Fault: 8 Billion Could Maybe Possibly Be At Risk From Malaria And Dengue

Gee, if only enviro-weenies hadn’t banned the use of DDT. And you hadn’t taken that fossil fueled trip to the beach

Climate crisis ‘may put 8bn at risk of malaria and dengue’

More than 8 billion people could be at risk of malaria and dengue fever by 2080 if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise unabated, a new study says.

Malaria and dengue fever will spread to reach billions of people, according to new projections.

Researchers predict that up to 4.7 billion more people could be threatened by the world’s two most prominent mosquito-borne diseases, compared with 1970-99 figures.

The figures are based on projections of a population growth of about 4.5 billion over the same period, and a temperature rise of about 3.7C by 2100.

Malaria kills more than 400,000 people every year, mostly children, according to the World Health Organization. In 2019, more than 90% of an estimated 230m cases occurred in Africa. Currently, artemisinin-based combination therapy is the best available treatment for the most dangerous form of malaria, P falciparum, which accounts for 90% of cases.

Dengue has no specific treatment. The disease is under-reported, with almost half the world’s population at risk. Dengue is estimated to infect 100 million to 400 million people every year, killing 20,000.

And this is going to jump to 8 billion? “If” temps jump 6.66F by 2100. Despite it being just 1.5F since 1850.

    The population of the entire world is 7.8 billion!

  2. Hairy says:

    Yes Dana youvare the current population is less than 8 billion

    However the article zteach cites says that in the year 2080 ( when the population of the world will be 20.8 billion) that 8 billion humans may be in danger of what we now call “tropical diseases”
    Looks like you might have not read the article because you immediately wanted to disagree with it
