    LOL – global warming has very little to do with insect vector problems
    2 mosquito species are known vectors of Dengue. Both are found widely distributed well into temperate areas of the world.

    Aedes albopictus = https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/File:Albopictus_distribution_2007.png

    Maybe if the so-called journalists bothered to research the subject, they wouldn’t write such rubbish.

    Quote:
    “Malaria, dengue fever, and Yellow fever are not actually “tropical” diseases. These illnesses were once common in North America (including Canada and Alaska), Western Europe (including Scandinavia), and Russia. Moreover, they were common in those places during the 19th century, when the world was by all accounts colder than it is today. Insect-borne diseases are not diseases of climate but of poverty.”
