The changing climate will not only bring new diseases, experts say, but also will threaten the water supply, worsen air quality and cardiovascular disease and cause deaths from extreme heat. From 2030 to 2050, nearly 250,000 people will die each year worldwide because of the health effects of climate change, according to the World Health Organization.

I feel that we have been next-door to destroyed now. In other words, the harm is done and cannot be healed, most especially due to Earth being over-populated and with the 1% continuing global destruction that adds to the negative effects on climate and perhaps irreversible mass devastation. I can see that the elite 1% that rules and destroys, realizes this and have recently panicked. I believe they see that they can't survive for much longer if they continue to share with the masses. Thus the much more overt escalation of poisonings of water and food. Assassinations, ala the '60's of leftists, progressives, peacemakers and all of that ilk who have any influence or power. To cut it short, all they want from the masses, at this juncture, is their absence---so that they can have Earth's rapidly vanishing resources to themselves, especially drinking water. That will buy them perhaps enough time to try to heal, or that failing, leave Earth. To be cold for a moment--realistically, they are probably correct. I think refugees and others who are at their brink, have received one sad gift--their senses are keener, having to draw on pure survival mode, inner instinct, intuition, psychic abilities. I believe they're feeling rushed to behave like bulldozers and just take what everyone has taken from them---with frills on it---due to their desperation and anger. This will spread rapidly and like a wildfire. Added to total mayhem of other natures, I just don't see how this can end well. A slim chance that if Bernie Sanders got in and was able to unite enough world leaders to earnestly make a united effort to save and heal what's left--working with scientists, environmentalists, "We The People"--just maybe there could be a healing and a saving of Earth, all life and millions of souls.

Universal studios must of known you were one of those evil Socialist You know the smart people.

Be careful when you keep tossing that over population around is the root of all our problems. The person who is living a meager existence on this Earth is contributing far less to its demise than the handful of Billionaires in their private jet travel, their heating these mansions and homes they don't even live in, the continued use of fossil fuels so that a few can remain wealthy, while solar is kicked to the curb.

Do be careful of this population speech because the 1% are more than happy to get rid of YOU! Because they are already doing it and will have no problem to rid the planet of YOU and YOUR loved one. Do you think they are willingly going to curb their overuse of all the Earth's resources? No way, even if it is down to the last 500 Greedy Heartless Ones fighting over the last clean pond of water, they will do so.

I'd already placed a video on that shows that when the Poorer do better, eat better, they automatically curb their own family size.
Will Saving Poor Children Lead to Overpopulation

The reason they have so many right now is because they hope one or two will survive and as most the poor Countries have no form of Social Security or retirement, that those couple who survive will help to take care of them in old age. Also as China found limiting to one child caused a shortage of girls as the society knew that when married the girl goes to the man she married family to take care of them in old age.

I don't feel so bad about humanity's demise. I DO regret the millions of innocent animals we're taking along with us.
