Russell, I've incorporated all the facts of your 3 sentences (on Human Health) into my paragraphs on it, except for the link on virus vectors, because I didn't see any information about weather-relatedness on the page you linked to. If the info's on a subpage, then add a link to the subpage back in, oK?

Here's what you had:

Climate change may affect the spread of West Nile Virus. WNV is transmitted by mosquitoes, and higher temperatures and other climate change-related phenomenon may affect disease vectors. Washington traditionally has low incidence of heat related illness and death, but studies have shown that small increase in temperature above specific thresholds can lead to a significant rise in heat-related deaths. [1]

Since it looks like we're working on this together, lets let each other know (briefly) on each other's talk pages what we've done -- especially deletions of whole sentences --ok?. There's a link to my talk page right below.
