In recent UN talks, information was presented stating that by 2030, the climate will change by up to 1.4 degrees and will cause an estimated one million deaths per year and at least $15 billion in economic damage as well.
The report warned, "in less than 20 years, almost all countries in the world will realize high vulnerability to climate impact as the planet heats up." Of the 184 nations, the hardest hit will be the 54 poorest nations, including India.
The four areas in which these countries will be affected: economic stress, health, loss of habitat by desertification and rising seas, and weather disasters. "Without corrective actions (the world is) headed for nearly one million deaths every single year by 2030," stated the study.
