When one opens up his/her web browser, one cannot help but see the ongoing headlines of climate change.
Climate change is real and it is a real threat to mankind. Massive hurricanes, tornado's, sinkholes, earthquakes, flooding, and fires are a part of our daily lives. Do you know a person who has been affected by natural disaster or disasters? If you have not met a person or a family who has; chances are you will, or you have and just do not know it. Climate change affects the mind, soul, spirit, and the human body. People who live in the central valley of California suffer from asthma and chronic lung conditions because of the many factors such as carbon dioxide in the air. http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/05/05/global_warming_carbon_dioxide_hits_all_time_high.html

‘The prevalence of asthma in the U.S. has increased by more than 75% since 1980; children and certain racial groups, especially African Americans, have experienced relatively greater increases in asthma prevalence. An estimated 11.9% of Californians - 3.9 million children and adults - report that they have been diagnosed with asthma at some point in their lives, compared to the national average of 10.1%.’ http://www.arb.ca.gov/research/asthma/asthma.htm

The effects are real, and skin conditions are also a real factor, so if one has not had a direct hit from the harshness of mother-nature such as a hurricane; they might have been affected by various other underlining conditions.
