Climate Change and Disaster: Chilling Impacts of a Warming World

Steady increases in temperatures have already dramatically changed our seasonal weather patterns — including more severe droughts, storms, floods, and heat waves. This has consequences on our lives and livelihoods — and it’s caused by climate change. These intensified floods, droughts, hurricanes and fires impact all of us but they disproportionately affect populations already made vulnerable by poverty and hunger.
