Mosquitoes and Global Warming

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

What are all those bumps on your armed on the Skua by Gile I was outside all weekend and didn't expect there to be so many bugs? No they only issue little. Lucky we live in a place where mosquitos don't usually carry deadly diseases. Let's appreciate it while we can. Scientists think that as many as a billion people around the world could be newly exposed to the diseases spread by mosquitoes within the next fifty years as global temperatures rise and mosquitoes thrive the research team looked at the two types of mosquitoes that most often carry diseases eighties Egypt I and eighties album pickus which can carry Denki. Angi Chicken Ganja and Zeka viruses they can also carry at least a dozen other emerging diseases that researchers warn could become a threat in the future. The team of researchers tracked how the mosquito populations would move as global temperatures changed and found that the tropics would likely be at risk for outbreaks of disease year round while everywhere else would be at risk seasonally. They were in that even places that used to be too cold for these two types of mosquitoes. Like areas of Europe and North America would see cases of tropical diseases like dingy so there will be no place to hide actually researchers expect to see the mosquito population decrease in areas that will be hit the worst with climate change such as West Africa and South East Asia but that's not necessarily good news rising temperatures bring a whole host of other problems. I can't imagine this moment of science comes from Indiana University with.
