The article examines the problem of the nature with global warming. The author argues that the bad impact of global warming on health is being experienced everywhere. According to scientific experts, environmental effects of global warming will still be experienced even if all carbon emissions would be stopped. He reports that in conjunction with these effects, malaria-carrying mosquitoes will spread into northern Europe and the highlands of tropical Africa.
