Climate Change has Brought Brain Eating Parasites to U.S.

Right now – a 12 year-old Arkansas girl – Kali Hardig – is clinging to life – after she was infected with the rare and extremely deadly brain-eating parasite N. fowler. According to the website The Verge – N. fowler is “a fatal infection without an effective treatment, and one that strikes in a decidedly gruesome manner: An amoebic organism lurking in water is inadvertently inhaled during a swim on a hot summer’s day. From there, it travels through the nasal passage and into the brain, where it multiplies, devours one’s cerebral fluid and gray matter, and almost invariably causes death.” Hardig was playing in a freshwater pool and waterpark – where the parasite is presumed to have entered her body. Not a single person is known to have survived such an infection in past decade – but currently – Hardig is in critical but stable condition. Doctors are also trying an experimental drug on her – that they say may be the key to fighting off the brain-eating parasite – and saving her life. While Hardig’s condition is very rare – it may become more common in the future. That’s because N. fowleri is one of several organisms that actually benefits from global warming and climate change. According to Michael Beach – a Centers for Disease Control and Prevent expert in recreational waterborne illnesses – N.fowleri, “is a heat-loving amoeba. As water temperatures go up, it does better. In future decades, as temperatures rise, we’d expect to see more cases.” And – as website The Verge noted, “In recent years, N. fowleri has popped up in unexpected locations, which some experts suggest is a sign that warmer waters – caused by brutal summer heat waves and rising temperatures across the country – are catalyzing their spread.” The fact that climate change is helping to promote the growth of such a deadly and debilitating condition is truly frightening – and is even more proof that we need to be doing more to fight back against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced.

Brad Johnson, Forecast The Facts, joins Thom Hartmann. Google’s motto is “Don’t Be Evil” – but that’s not stopping the company from backing one of the biggest climate change deniers around. Is Google violating its own corporate ethos by supporting Inhofe?
