Global malaria deaths have been cut in half since the year 2000, reports a new topical climate summary at ClimateAtAGlance.com. The new summary: Climate at a Glance: Malaria and Mosquito-Borne Diseases, provides policymakers, teachers, students, and interested lay persons a concise, bullet-pointed refutation to alarmist climate claims regarding malaria and mosquitos.

World Health Organization data show global malaria cases have been declining throughout this century. Ninety percent of global malaria cases occur in Africa. Since 2000, the number of African malaria cases has been cut in half, as has been the case for the rest of the world.

Notably, there have been no malaria deaths in North America or Europe since 1990 – 30 years of global warming ago.

By far, the greatest factors affecting malaria cases and death are targeted pesticide application, mosquito nets, and access to healthcare – not climate change.
