Global warming hastens microbial evolution. Get ready for more pandemics.

Science has proven many facts. Among them, the smaller the organism, the faster it can evolve to adapt to its surroundings.

In the past 25 years we've seen new pandemics explode..

SARS

MERS

MRSA

COVID


Global warming is hastening the rate of evolution of these microbes.

New diseases just don't pop up out of nowhere.

The scariest part of global warming isn't rising oceans or weather events.

It's the proven fact that modern pandemics are directly traced to global warming and these new "bugs" that are growing from their free energy source.

Warmth.

1. Microbial generally means bacterial.

SARS-CoV-1, MERS and SARS-CoV-2 are viruses.

We generally get viruses from going places we ought not to go and doing things we ought not to do.

Like going into caves with bats, deforestation of rainforests and eating animals we ought not to eat...like pangolins.

4. It does make the spread much easier.

But the 1918-1920 flu pandemic virus did quite well on only 1.5 billion of us. I think that bug was more virulent than SARS-CoV-2.
