It Was Only a Matter of Time - Swine Flu Caused by Climate Change

According to Steven Sanderson, head of the Wildlife Conservation Society, “even minor (climate) disturbances can have far reaching consequences on diseases”. He added, “The term ‘climate change’ conjures images of melting ice caps and rising sea levels that threaten coastal cities and nations, but just as important is how increasing temperatures and fluctuating precipitation levels will change the distribution of dangerous pathogens”.
What is particularly special about this attribution is that both of these fearsome things are bogus. 160 deaths is a slow murder week in Mexico. And thousands of folks die every year from the Flu. What's special about this one. Last I heard, it's so mild it's hard to know if you even have it. And anyone with half a clue knows that the climate changes all the time (but not all that much to cause any harm).

I guess it can be added to the list of thousands of other things that are caused by AGW
