Your Fault: Fungus Could Possibly Maybe Become More Dangerous From Global Boiling

Did this happen during the previous Holocene warm periods?

Climate Change Could Make Fungi More Dangerous To Humans

Public health officials have long been concerned that rising temperatures on Earth could trigger fungi to become more harmful to people. Oh, sure, some people get ringworm or nail infections, and some women repeatedly get yeast infections, but other than those instances, fungal infections have not been exceptionally problematic. This, however, is changing.

An international team of medical researchers and infectious disease specialists based in China collaborated with a researcher from Singapore and another from Canada, and together, they found troubling evidence suggesting that, as the planet warms, fungi could indeed become more dangerous to humans.

China, huh? Anyhow, once you start throwing out the word “suggesting” it means they do not know, and it’s not really science.

Anyhow, blah blah blah, we looked a few people, and

This is deeply concerning. Considering the increasing use of immuno-suppressive medications in recent decades and the ongoing HIV epidemic, there are more individuals with compromised immune systems in the general population who have an increase risk for fungal infections. Additionally, because fungi undergo increased mutation rates in warmer environments — including the higher body temperatures of mammals — this could trigger mutations in fungi so they become more infective and drug resistant.

Well, a lot of that can be solved by not being fat and not having unprotected gay sex.


NASA Releases Updated Climate Change Adaptation, Resilience Plan

NASA joined more than 20 federal agencies in releasing its updated Climate Adaptation Plan Thursday, helping expand the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to make federal operations increasingly resilient to the impacts of climate change for the benefit of all.

The updated plans advance the administration’s National Climate Resilience Framework, which helps align climate resilience investments across the public and private sectors through common principles and opportunities.

“Thanks to the leadership of the Biden-Harris Administration, we are strengthening climate resilience to ensure humanity is well-prepared for the effects of climate change,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson. “NASA’s decades of Earth observation are key to building climate resiliency and sustainability across the country and the world.”

How about actually doing space exploration?

    Their findings are indeed “science”.

    …through the China Hospital Invasive Fungal Surveillance Net programme, we identified two independent cases of human infection with a previously undescribed invasive fungal pathogen, Rhodosporidiobolus fluvialis, from a genus in which many species are highly resistant to fluconazole and caspofungin. Furthermore, we show that mouse infection or mammalian body temperature induces its mutagenesis, allowing the emergence of hypervirulent mutants. Temperature-induced mutagenesis can also elicit the development of pan-resistance to three of the most commonly used first-line antifungals (fluconazole, caspofungin and amphotericin B) in different Rhodosporidiobolus species. Collectively, by identifying and characterizing a fungal pathogen in the drug-resistant genus Rhodosporidiobolus, we provide evidence that temperature-dependent mutagenesis can enable the development of pan-drug resistance and hypervirulence in fungi, and support the idea that global warming can promote the evolution of new fungal pathogens.

    They found 2 patients with fungal infections from a species not normally infecting humans. That’s no biggie. The scientists did NOT get out over THEIR skis but the Forbes writers did.

    First principles… Temperature increases the rate of chemical reactions. The molecules move faster and are 1) more likely to collide and 2) greater velocity makes each collision more reactive.

      And CO2 molecules on adsorbing radiation begin to vibrate and collide and that leads to destruction of the molecule. See, Jeff leaves out stuff which is the same as lying.
      Then there is the fact that the climate is changing, which is what climate does and it is not due to carbon which is only 0.04% of the atmosphere. And increases after warming has occurred. Fungal infections are very common in Asia.

    Mr david said that radiation destroys CO2, we assume he means infrared radiation. See, mr david leaves out stuff like CO2 is stable to infrared which is the same as lying.
