New Warmist Claim: ‘Could Climate Change Amplify the Zika Outbreak? One day, yes.’

Zika is bad, and it’s on its way here. In an editorial for the Guardian, climate change activist Bill McKibben called Zika “something out of a science fiction story, the absolute core of a dystopian future.” I’m as worried about climate change as anyone. But McKibben is being unnecessarily alarmist. In the future, climate change will indeed encourage the significant northward spread of some tropical diseases. But this is not an example of climate change alreadyspreading disease.
