The main factors climate change affects that are related to human health are clean air, clean drinking water and sufficient food. Since climate change means so much more than just the temperature rising (erratic weather patters, extreme heat and cold, higher risk for natural disasters) it can be a lot worse than just getting sunburned because the atmosphere is thinner. Dry spells do not allow crops to grow, causing famine to spread in poorer countries, including one of the worst famines our world has seen last year in parts of Africa. Flooding is also a huge issue with rising sea levels. Floods contaminate clean water sources which can lead to diarrhoeal disease which kills approximately 2.2 million people every year.
