All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it's here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster. Global warming is the worst and most prominent form of climate changes that has resulted from the over emission of Greenhouse gases by voluntary human activities. Ecological deforming is evident from the extreme events like heat waves, storms, cyclones, hurricanes etc. those are putting direct and indirect ill effects on health. All these events has made difficult to the task of total eradication of contagious disorders from this planet. On the contrary microorganisms are getting a life line in such environmental favours to them. According to McMichael, Infectious diseases cannot be stabilized in circumstances of climatic instability ,refugee flows and impoverishment. In other words this is a manmade web of disasters that looks very complicated and unstoppable at this stage. But there is no time to wait and watch now and hold others responsible for this. Actually this is the most appropriate time to get into action to overcome the pathogenesis of such natural disasters, otherwise we will pass a point of no return and lock ourselves into centuries of global warming.
