    [T]he deeper and more insidious impacts will be] from the secondary impacts of climate change…[Rising global temperatures will] expand the habitat of mosquitos, exposing more people to diseases including dengue, chikungunya and zika, and would cause other diseases to spread…Climate change is expected to pose particularly stark issues for childhood development…[Children born to women who were pregnant while they experienced floods in Brisbane in 2011 had lower cognitive capacity (equivalent to at least 14 points on an IQ scale), smaller vocabularies and less imaginative play at the age of two…The decreased nutritional value of staple crops as a result of higher CO2 concentration [is] expected to cause stunting, anaemia and malnutrition in children, within 10 to 20 years…” click here for more
