Global Warming, Disease Spread Link Uncertain Panel Says
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - While changes in climate can contribute to some disease outbreaks, it is not yet possible to determine if global warming causes diseases to spread, a panel of independent U.S. scientists said on Monday.
A National Academy of Sciences panel called on the federal government to help create computer models and collect more data about disease outbreaks to determine if a connection exists.
The scientists' report was released amid a growing debate over what action, if any, the Bush administration plans to take to reduce fossil fuel emissions that are largely blamed for global warming.
