'Deadly Dozen' set to proliferate as globe warms

The Wildlife Conservation Society warns climate change is supercharging the spread of a "deadly dozen" diseases, reports Reuters. The deadly dozen include ebola, bird flu and everybody's favorite, the plague.

As you can see, climate change has more of an impact than melting glaciers and receding shore lines.

This is why climate change sucks, people. Wouldn't you rather hear about the spread of really cool things like elephants, rain forests, giraffes, gorillas and waterfalls instead of ebola and Black Death?

About Me

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
