The report, Tackling Climate Change, Reducing Poverty, says that the poor are likely to be worst affected by rising temperatures because they tend to live in less energy-efficient housing, have less access to insurance against floods, and have less money to adapt to higher prices of fuel and food. The authors of the study, by Oxfam and the New Economics Foundation, base their findings on work by organisations including Friends of the Earth.
Hmm, that\’s interesting, isn\’t it?
The new economics foundation seems to think that rising temperatures will create a greater demand for the heating of houses.
It\’s amazing how interesting the results from "new economics" as compared to the old can be.
