CLIMATE CHANGE CLAIMS 300,00 LIVES A YEAR

Labels:

climate change magnifies the possibility that the future will bring droughts or floods you never saw in your old measurements."
London - Rising temperatures due to climate change already account for some 300,000 deaths a year around the world and could rise to half a million casualties by the year 2030, estimates published Friday showed.
Most of the deaths would occur as a result of long-term environmental degradation due to climate change, with causes including malnutrition and disease, while others would be the result of weather-related disasters.
A report on the human impact of climate change, presented by the Global Humanitarian Forum in London Friday, put the current estimated costs of global warming at 125 billion dollars a year.
By 2030, the number of people seriously affected, either in the short term, for example through loss of their homes due to weather disasters such as flooding, or in the long term through water scarcity, hunger or disease, could rise to 660 million.
Former UN secretary general Kofi Annan, President of the Global Humanitarian Forum, described global warming as the "greatest emerging humanitarian challenge of our time."
