İKLİM DEĞİŞİKLİĞİ İNSANLARIN SONUNU MU GETİRİYOR? 

 

     Climate change which is one of the biggest environmental issues is growing more serious by the day. There are a lot of works being carried out in regard to the affair of climate change today’s world since it has become a major concern throughout all the world. Although some people don’t believe that climate change’s impacts pose a problem for humanity, it may actually be argued that it will be an irreversible end for humanity. For one reason, climate change may adversely affect food security and cause the end of food supplies. Secondly, climate change may lead to some serious and fatal health problems such as cancer, plagues, infectious and etc. Lastly, the air that we breath is polluted and become unbreathable by the increase of carbon dioxide emissions. I will argue that climate change is a big issue that has some fatal effects on the world and if it is not prevented, it results in the destruction of humanity. 

 

One of the main reasons for thinking climate change is a threat is that some kind of cancer and infectious disease are increased by climate change day by day. Global climate change consists of a set of environmental changes that impress each other and exert serious and interactive health influences.   

By increasing of harmful gases release due to climate change, the depletion of stratospheric ozone has come in existence. Boyes2 (1999) argues that the ozone layer placed above the earth in the stratosphere layer contribute for protecting species on the earth from ultraviolet ray’s damage. The reason for that is to the destruction of the ozone layer which prevents UV radiation.

Gruji3 (1999) argues that UV radiation from the exposure to sunlight is the most common, known and prominent physical carcinogen. The relationships between continuous exposure to skin cancer and UV rays were confirmed by experiments by physicians.

McMichael4 (2003) reports that in the event that environmental change and ensuing stratospheric cooling postpone the recuperation of defensive ozone, there will be more noteworthy quantities of skin cancer. In addition to this, Melanoma, which is the most feared cancer type in the world, is the most feared cancer in skin cancers. As long as climate change and related effects continue to be seen, humanity will be destroyed by lethal skin cancer. In other words, the skin cancer that is seen as a result of climate change impacts is a strong reason for the destruction of a human being.

As a result of the proliferation of disease-causing microorganisms by entering into the human or animal body by any means, the disease group defined by the conflict between the microorganism itself or toxins and the body and defined by pathological symptoms is called infectious diseases. (Johnny W. Peterson5)

The air and climate are the determinants of the distribution and repetition of water, food, and animal-borne diseases, including the vector (through infection, through the sucking of blood through the tick, mosquito-like pests to humans). Haines6 at all (2006) argues that 2-5 degrees increase globally appears by the day. Different problems are accelerated by especially climate warming.

Many infectious diseases can be transmitted from a person to another person due to the changes in the temperature, floods, and drought. The frequency of the pathogens explained as disease-causing disease and microorganism vary depending on the weather conditions and the change in it.

Haines6 at all (2005) argues that the increase in the risk of the heat wave is explained as human impacts on the world and weather conditions depending on the climate change has doubled hazards especially infection disease and pathogens. So, that means the deadly infectious diseases cause the death of millions of people around the world every year. Infection diseases such as lower respiratory tract infections, diarrheal diseases, HIV / AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria result in the death of many people.
