Global Warming and its Effects on Human Health Throughout the World in the 21st Century
“Solutions to the problems faced by physicians will be fruitless if we ignore the health perils posed by global climate change.” -Gerald O'Hanley
What is Global Warming? the World in the 21
Definition:An increase in the Earth’s average Atmospheric Temperature that in turn causes corresponding Changes in the Climate.
Factors That Contribute to Global Warming the World in the 21
University of Michigan
In 1996 motorists in Los Angeles and New York City wasted 600 Million gallons of gas sitting in traffic, which is the equivalent to 7.5 million tons of CO2

Deforestation through the burning of the dense forests.
The Amazon Rainforest, which spans 7 million Km2 over 9 different countries, stores at least 75 billion tons of Carbon in the trees and other green plants.
The Green House Effect the World in the 21
Increase in Vector-Borne Diseases in the 21
Center for Disease Control and Prevention
An Anopheles mosquito takes blood from a human host. This mosquito is a vector for malaria.
Mice are common vectors for the plague in infected areas

Current Malaria Situation in the 21
Pim Martens, Maastricht University
Warmer temperatures with increased moisture will expand the geographical range of the vector organisms to areas of higher altitude and latitude, which increases the zone of possible transmission for many vector-borne diseases.

Climatic factors influencing the range and propagation of vector-borne and water-borne diseases, and the probable human impacts of these diseases as a result of climatic change by 2050.
It is predicted that by 2050 approximately 5, 925, 000, 000 Peopleat risk to these infectious diseases World Wide 
An increase in sea surface temperatures can lead to an increasing abundance of water-borne infections and diseasessuch as cholera .Increase of Water-Borne Diseases

It is possible that over 1 billion peoplein over 30 countries will not have an available clean water source if the issue of water quality continues in the years to come.

Flooding due to Hurricane Katrina

Health News Stat will Face in the 21
1. Health care of humans must be put at the Forefront of climate change as humans will be the species most directly at risk to global warming.
BBC will Face in the 21
2. Health Infrastructures must be in place in order to deal with the onset of various diseases, Especially in third world countries.
3. The development of earlier warning systems for outbreaks of ALL diseases, not just a select few, and research into possible Vaccinations and Treatments for these diseases must continue.
Nene Valley Medical Practice
4. The already strong work on the elimination and eradication through preventative chemotherapy of many tropical diseases that plague third world countries must continue forward Or Else these diseases will have the potential to spread northward effecting populations with very little experience in combating these diseases.
