In some water sources, there are dangerous bacterial infections: When there is rain, there can be a mixture of stormwater and sewage water that can contain bacteria, Dr. Mona Sarfaty, director of the program on climate and health at George Mason University's Center for Climate Change Communication says.

-It can affect crops like corn, adding to foodborne diseases: Heavy rain and floodwater can spread bacteria and viruses into fields where food is growing, said a report from the Medical Society. When people get sick then more people will have to spend even MORE money, or the people can die. When people die, fewer people will contribute to the economy, and then we won’t be able to spend money on climate change. Also according to the New York Post, foodborne viruses such as Vibrio is becoming more widespread in a particular place or area as a result of climate change, according to a report from Nutrition Action Healthletter, the flagship publication of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer advocacy( ADD-VO-CACY) nonprofit. Vibrio is bacteria that can infect shellfish in coastal waters. The bacteria cause vibriosis ( VIB-RE-O-SIS), a form of food poisoning that causes an estimated 80,000 illnesses and 100 deaths annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (also known as cdc.gov). Some forms of vibrio are also responsible for cholera (CALL-LER-AH), which according to the World Health Organization, researchers have estimated that each year there are 1.3 million to 4.0 million cases of cholera, and 21,000 to 143,000 deaths worldwide due to cholera and the bacteria can also cause a skin infection. Impact- Spending money on climate change will let people live a long and happy life and prevent diseases.
