In a sobering report released today by UK NGO
Christian Aid, new figures show the shocking degree to which the world's poor already suffer from the effects of climate change.
The report also shows “the poor people in the world's most vulnerable communities will bear the brunt of the forecast 'future shock.” According to the report, “a staggering 182 milliion people om sub-Saharan Afric alone could die of disease directly attributable to climate change by the end of the century. Many millions more throughout the world face death and devastation due to climate-induced floods, famine, drought and conflict.”
