Climate change will make us more likely to wet the bed and trigger a plague of ticks, snakes and voles, research claims.
A rise in ‘devastating’ droughts, floods, wildfires and other weather events caused by global warming will impact nature in a number of bizarre ways, the study shows.
Emissions - Increase - Society - Threat - Climate
As emissions increase, society faces a much larger threat from climate change than previously thought, the team from University of Hawaii in Manoa said.
They analysed thousands of scientific papers on climate change, uncovering 467 different ways that greenhouse gases impact life on Earth.
Increase - Floods - Drought - Wildfires - Hurricanes
They include an increase in floods, drought, wildfires and hurricanes that the team projects will hit both rich and poor communities.
Some of the stranger effects included changes to animal behaviour, including ticks, snails and snakes.
Temperatures - Distribution - Snails - China - Regions
Rising temperatures will likely alter the distribution of snails in China, pushing them into regions that were previously too cold for them to inhabit.
Snakes and ticks are also heavily impacted by atmospheric temperatures, and countries with low numbers of the creatures could see a rise by 2100.
Sweden - Invasion - Voles - Cover - Winter
In Sweden, an invasion of voles in 2007 was attributed to reduced snow cover after an unusually warm winter – similar plague could become more common.
The team behind the new study said warmer temperatures may also cause people to wet the bed more.
Research - Women
Previous research has shown that pregnant women exposed...
