This blog offers an interesting conclusion. Not sure if the facts support the case that global warming is the cause for disease and infestation propagation to new areas of the world. The global temperature has only increased .6 deg C in the past 100 years and has been pretty constant (if not slightly down) in the last 10 or so. Seems like there may be a different cause for this change.

One of the latest issues to start making an appearance is the inevitable spread of bacteria and microbes to new locations.As temperatures change, people around the world are being exposed to diseases and illnesses that they never have been before.
Examples include bacteria-infected oysters off the coast of Alaska, an overgrown tick population carrying encephalitis in Sweden, and mosquitoes bringing malaria to villages that were previously out of reach way up on Mt. Kenya in Africa.
