Abstract: Abstract In our study1 we did not address the impact of predicted climate change on malaria incidence because a complete global assessment is reported elsewhere2. Regarding the climate surfaces we used, the data set has superior spatial resolution compared with other data sets of similar temporal extent3,4, and has been used to quantify climate change across Africa at 0.5 × 0.5° spatial resolution5 (although the resulting maps are smoothed to emphasize regional changes). It is inconsistent to assert that these same data are insufficient to demonstrate a lack of climate change.
