New evidence that poorer countries will suffer the worst effects of climate change
Because, you know, they’re poor.
Poor people and poor places will always bear the brunt of the damage of anything at all. Because, you know, they’re poor.
Where this gets interesting of course is in what we do next? Do we stop economic growth so that poor people aren’t affected or do we go hell for leather for economic growth so there’s no poor to be affected? Our general activity of the past 40 years has been the second: entirely the right reaction in my view.
