Climate Changes by 2030 Will Cause a Million Deaths Yearly

 

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.

Educate yourself!!!
what does the air temperature over one area have to do with the average global ocean temperature? Do you even know how the global temperature is measured. Obviously Not as it is not a measure of Air temperature. Especially not over land than only makes up 1/3 of the surface. Maybe the fact that oceans cover 2/3 of the world means that their temperature means more than what it is in your backyard.
Your Objections to Climate change are based on your own astounding ignorance on the subject, if you want to make a meaningful contribution at least learn what the hell we´re talking about, because you comment (which I´d like to see number for) doesn´t even relate expect for the fact that it is some ways involves temperature.

the earth´s temperature goes through cycles. I highly doubt humans have anything to do with the temperature rising.

  Umm  
 
*sigh* What happened to 2050? And why isn´t there a mention of some crisis that the governments needs to attend to in the form of raising taxes on us because we use energy but only to raise them in the form of research and development of green technology we will never see of or hear of?

Electric cars... green? Ha!

  I wonder.  
 
Does anyone actually believe these lies anymore.

You are wasting your breath. This site is full of climate change naysayers who won´t believe any evidence presented to them. The earth was given to them by a ´god´ to rape and pillage at will with no consequences. Their unseen being will protect them and the earth, so they fiddle while having their heads buried. Ignorance is always bliss.
