“Our climate is in crisis, our health is at stake.” “A tragedy is unfolding.” “The gradual warming of the earth's atmosphere affects extreme weather like droughts and hurricanes but did you know these types of natural disasters can play a role in disease spread and pandemic.” In another study published in the April 2022 issue of the journal Nature scientists warn that global warming could also significantly increase the risk of new zoonotic diseases. The most recent example of a zoonotic disease was COVID-19. In an April 2022 study, the researchers state that global warming is forcing animal-people to migrate to new geographic areas in search of more favorable living conditions. The scientists warn that this mass migration of animal-people will significantly increase the risk of new pandemics.Scientists are now warning that in coming years pandemics and diseases could be among the biggest threats to humanity. One zoonotic disease that recently began to spread to a much broader geographic area is Monkeypox. The US CDC states that, currently, there is no treatment for the disease. Another deadly zoonotic disease that has recently resurfaced throughout several African countries is Ebola. During 2022, a highly infectious strain of avian influenza or bird-people flu raged throughout many parts of the world. In 2022, Europe experienced its worst outbreak of bird-people flu on record.How can we reduce the threat of future pandemics from infectious diseases? “We need to protect habitats. We need to tackle climate change. We need to address the risk of large-scale livestock production because a lot of the pathogens move from wild animals into livestock and then into people.” Many experts say that the easiest way to resolve most of the issues facing Earth today, including climate change and pandemics, is a global shift to the vegan lifestyle. These experts stress that there’s an urgent need to bring about this change now before it’s too late.
