SPOTLIGHT

1. HEALTH:

Researchers find warming temperatures impair multiple sclerosis patients

Scientists have found numerous links between infectious diseases and climate change, but a new study indicates that an autoimmune disease may be affected by warming temperatures, as well. Changing precipitation and extreme temperatures shift how infection vectors interact with their environments. They push mosquitoes, mice and ticks into new areas, exposing new populations to malaria, Lyme disease and influenza.

2. AGRICULTURE:

U.N. report sees climate among the forces ending herders' home on the range

The modern world is creeping up on Mongolia's reindeer herders and could destroy the ancient nomadic culture unless urgent steps are taken to preserve it, a new U.N. Environment Programme report finds. Climate change, tourism, unregulated mining and logging, and water pollution all have a hand in chipping away at the lifestyle of Mongolia's Dukha culture, according to the report.
