Perhaps. That's why I was disappointed that the relevant data was not more easily searchable. Deaths is not a sufficient indicator of the problem.

The point I wanted to make is not so much about tropical diseases being on the rise - obviously the medical world is evolving, and so is pest control.

The point is that hot humid conditions are what make these pests possible.
Heat does not kill people directly, but it provides the circumstances for malaria to kill over a million people each year. And that's just one disease.
Polar bears kill too, but as a cause of human mortality they are no match for diseases spread by tropical mosquitoes.

If we're not careful their habitat will spread through our addiction to fossil fuels.

I've seen those basstards in freezing conditions on glaciers in the mountains. We need something more effective than not allowing a 2C rise in temperature to fight those bloody creatures. My preference is precision lasers, but CRISPR is probably more promising.

As an aside, I've heard that no creatures depend on mosquitoes for their survival, so I say we eradicate them.

That should go over real well in texas.

I'm not your boy.I'm not willing to turn on a dime and redirect my course of study predicated upon your interests.Perhaps,at my speed,over time,I would be able to flesh out data more fully.
If you're going to debate facts,you're going to have to do your own due diligence and build your own brief.
Data is always available online.
NATURE will be able to provide raw data.Research methodologies.Computer/statistical models employed. .Results.Probabilities,Conclusions,Discussion,Reco mmendations for further research.Any post-publishing corrections

But, I was paying attention. You made statements without providing links or more information . If I had made similar statements against AGW without links or proof you or someone else would have called me out.

Funny, I could say the same thing.

I had a folder.

Key word “had”...

It is now just a corrupt file.

She thinks everyone in the state is a fellow extremists Las Crucis democrat like her self.
2 of the 4 counties next to the boarder are blue counties. She is going to turn at least one of them red.
NM is 49 and 49th for jobs and education, democrats depend on a steady supply of stupid poor people so that's not going to change.

ENERGY USE IN SWEDEN
More than half of the energy used in Sweden comes from renewable energy sources. Sweden manages to combine a high energy consumption with low carbon emissions.
Sweden has driven their CO2 emissions down below the global average.
No longer do developed countries need to be the worst polluters.
