While some may contest the idea of climate change as contrived or having subversive political agenda, infectious disease researchers are continuing to gather mounting data, supporting the notion that shifts in global temperatures are allowing for the emergence and rapid spread of various microbial pathogens. Results from one such study were just published by investigators at the University of Liverpool, which implies that the impact of climate change on the spread of infectious diseases could be even greater than previously thought. The new findings were published recently in Scientific Reports through an article entitled “ Systematic Assessment of the Climate Sensitivity of Important Human and Domestic Animals Pathogens in Europe .” "Although there is a well-established link between climate change and infectious disease, we did not previously understand how big the effects will be and which diseases will be most affected,” explained lead study investigator Marie McIntyre, Ph.D., ...
