Ask your doctor if global warming is right for you.









There are more I've never seen before as well, but a few are going to offend some DUers. (Texans, RKBA folks, and crackers, sorry.)

3. I was talking to an epidemiologist at thanksgiving

and he said global warming and tropical diseases spreading north would not be good for me.

4. Holy malaria, Batman! I had never even considered that aspect of climate change. A quick search

tells me it's a threat worth considering.
On one side of the debate stands researcher Ulisses Confalonieri, of Brazil’s state-run Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz), who argues that the press often oversimplifies a very complex issue.

On the other side, the president of the Brazilian Society of Tropical Medicine (SBMT), Carlos Henrique Costa Nery, told IPS that “it is not outrageous to say that climate change has inevitable consequences for tropical diseases.”

“Global warming is ‘tropicalising’ subtropical regions; rising temperatures could bring an explosion of parasite and insect vectors that are expanding into North America, the Southern Cone of South America, Australia and New Zealand,” Costa Nery said.
