Climate change presents an existential challenge to human existence. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change expects 1.5°C of warming by 2030 and 3-4°C by 2100, which would make large parts of the globe uninhabitable through flooding and desertification. The impacts are already being felt. The arctic is melting. Deforestation and warming both exacerbate the conditions for pathogens to mutate and spill into human populations.
