    BRAIN EATING PARASITES THRIVE IN CLIMATE CHANGE

    Climate Change Does Have Some Winners, Like Brain-Eating Parasites.

    Joe Romm, April 14, 2015 (ClimateProgress)

    “It’s a myth there are no big winners from climate change besides fossil fuel companies…[It] is doubling bark beetle mating, triggering up to 60 times as many beetles attacking trees every year. The decline in creatures with shells thanks to ocean acidification ‘could trigger an explosion in jellyfish populations.’ And climate change has helped dengue fever, which spread to 28 U.S. states back in 2009…Of course, invasive plants will become ‘even more dominant in the landscape.’ And who doesn’t love ratsnakes?...Let’s also not forget brain-eating parasites, which are expected to thrive as U.S. lakes heat up. That parasite — the amoeba, Naegleria fowleri — feasts on human brains like a tiny zombie…But this is just a taste of things to come, as two parasite experts explain in a recent article…[that] is part of a special April issue of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B. on climate change and vector-borne diseases of humans…” click here for more
