Global Warming and Malaria

http://www.bbc.com/news/health-26470755


 So pretty scary guys, Malaria due to higher global temperatures has gained the ability to move to higher altitudes such as in Ethiopia where over half the population lives at around 5,000 feet. Current studies say that just a 1 degree change in celsius could lead to 3 million additional cases of Malaria in children under the age of 15. In 2012 alone over 600 thousand people died from Malaria related causes. If you don't care about the environment, perhaps this could be some inclination to decrease your carbon footprint.
