Global warming and Natural Disasters

Climate change is no longer a vague hypothetical for Earth’s future. Scientists agree that the effects of greenhouse gas emissions already have altered ecosystems, weather patterns, food supplies, lives and economies. From severe drought and fires to rising seas and eroding coastlines, warnings from decades ago have manifested worldwide. 

The last year alone has seen a series of devastating climate disasters in various parts of the world, including Europe, such as deadly heat waves and flooding. From Mozambique to Bangladesh millions of people have already lost their homes, livelihoods, and loved ones as a result of more dangerous and more frequent extreme weather events.
